Due to the mild Fall, Leaf Bag pickup has been extended through January

The Public Works Department has extended its curbside leaf collection through January due to the mild Fall.

Leaves must be placed at the curb in either biodegradable paper bags or loose in garbage cans for collection. Any leaves placed at the curb in plastic bags or cardboard boxes will not be accepted.

Please place leaf bags/cans at curbside on Sunday evening. Each street will get a pick-up at least once per week. Neighborhood start points will be rotated throughout town for the season. 

Do not rake or blow leaves into the street; it is considered littering, causes parking issues, and other potential hazards. It is a violation of Borough ordinance, as well as, the State of New Jersey Storm Water Management Act. The street sweeper is not designed to pick-up piles of raked leaves. 

Have you considered backyard composting? visit http://www.nj.gov/dep/dwq/pdf/rutgershomecompost.pdf?. The State mandates that leaves be recycled as well as composted.
