2014 Leaf Collection

2014 LEAF COLLECTION The Borough offers 3 ways for residents to dispose of their leaves: 1. CONTAINERS OR BAGS AT THE CURB.* This is the preferred method. Weekly curbside collection of yard waste in containers will continue until December 17, 2014. 50 free bags are available per household, at the Public Works Garage and other Borough offices from October 20, 2014. (PROOF OF RESIDENCY REQUIRED) 2. BRING TO MUNICIPAL GARAGE. Residents can bring leaves to the municipal garage on weekdays from October 27 – December 8, 2014 between the hours of 7:30 am to 3 pm. Note, this is weekdays only and no commercial dumping is allowed. 3. RAKE TO THE CURB. This is the least preferred method as it’s expensive and causes issues with traffic and storm water management. Collection will start on October 27, 2014 and weather permitting will continue until early December. December 12, 2014 is the last day to put your leaves out to the curb. In order to make curbside collection of leaves more efficient, place the leaves in the street. This allows our workforce to use front-end loaders for pickup when leaves are wet. Please call the Department of Public Works at 973-593-3088 if you need any additional information. Thank you. *NOTE: USING CONTAINERS OR BAGS WILL SAVE THE BOROUGH MONEY AND HELP KEEP YOUR TAXES DOWN!
