When will the city pick up my leaves?

Leaf season usually begins in early November and runs through late December. DPW crews will make a minimum of two passes on every street to collect leaves during those weeks. Leaves should be placed in piles along the curb or placed in biodegradable paper leaf bags available at most hardware stores. Leaves placed in plastic bags will not be collected. Because of new statewide regulations from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, leaves and other yard waste cannot be placed in the roadway more than seven days prior to the scheduled collection dates or closer than ten feet from any storm drain inlet. Please call the city's leaf hotline at 732-827-2063 during leaf collection season to learn where DPW crews will be working that day.
