It won’t be long before the leaves begin to fall. Residents of Somerville are reminded that by Ordinance, leaves must be recycled, not thrown in trash. Leaves can be raked into the curb where they will be vacuumed up by the Borough Public Works Department. Please be very careful not to block storm drains to prevent flooding in case of heavy rain.
The collection of leaves will start on October 24th, 2011. The last day leaves will be collected by our machines will be December 12th, 2011. Prior to October 24th and after December 12th, leaves will have to be placed in clear plastic bags for collection and call the Public Works Department at 908-725-2300, ext. 1961.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Public Works Department at 908-725-2300, ext. 1961.
