Spring Leaf Pickup

It is that time again, Spring Leaf pickup, beginning the end of April.  Please check back or contact Borough Hall (973-226-3400) for exact dates.

Our leaf collecting equipment will pick up leaves and brush throughout the Borough.  

 Please remember:

  • PLACE LEAVES NO MORE THAN 3 FEET FROM THE CURBLINE.  
  • DO NOT PILE THE LEAVES ON THE ROAD SURFACE.
  • DO NOT PILE LEAVES WITHIN 10 FEET OF ANY CATCH BASIN OR WITHIN 20 FEET OF ANY INTERSECTION.
  • LEAVES WILL NOT BE PICKED UP IF THEY ARE MIXED WITH STICKS, STONES, CANS OR OTHER HARD MATERIAL in the piles. They will damage our leaf collecting equipment!
  • ALL BRANCHES AND BRUSH MUST BE TIED IN BUNDLES, NO MORE THAN 4 FEET LONG, AND WEIGHING NO MORE THAN 50 POUNDS.  PLACE THE BUNDLES AT THE CURB, SEPARATE FROM THE LEAVES.
  • DUE TO STATE REGULATIONS, WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT GRASS CLIPPINGS!      

Try these “green” alternatives for your grass clippings:

1.    Leave the grass clippings as a natural fertilizer for your lawn.  Studies show that you can reduce your total annual mowing time by 20-25% in this way!
2.    Collect grass clippings and apply them to your flower or vegetable garden as mulch. 
3.    Mix them directly into garden soil. This will increase drainage in heavier soils, while improving water retention in sandy soils.

Happy Spring!
