10/1/2022 - Leaf Collection Starts October 1

The Department of Public Works will assist residents with leaf disposal from October 1 until mid December. Please mark your calendars: 

October 1: Start collecting leaves in paper bags.

  • Call 908-704-7195 for pickup.
  • Or, drop off bags in the DPW dumpster, located at 34 5th Street (7:30 am to 3:30 pm, Monday to Friday). 

November 1: Start raking leaves to the curb. 

  • The Borough will provide 3 rounds of leaf collection, starting November 1.
  • Each round takes 2-3 weeks, weather permitting, starting at the edge of town and moving towards the center.
  • To help prevent flooding, please do not block catch basins or storm drains (metal grates on the street).
