2019 Leaf Collection Notice

NOTICE TO BERNARDSVILLE RESIDENTS:
2019 RESIDENTIAL LEAF COLLECTION

Leaves make excellent compost. Please compost wherever possible.  If you have a wooded section of your property, please consider blowing your leaves into this area.  
    
The Borough Road Department asks that residents comply with the following procedures for the placement of leaves for safe and efficient leaf collection services in Residential areas (excluding 3, 5, and 10 acre zones).

  • Residents may place their leaves along the edge of the roadway beginning on October 27, 2019 for the first pickup and by December 1, 2019 for the second pickup period.
     
  • Note that the leaf crews will not return once they have provided one (1) pickup on your roadway during the second pickup period which begins the Monday after Thanksgiving. After this time residents must bring their leaves to the compost facility as noted below. 
     
  • Leaves should be placed in piles no more than five feet wide or three feet deep. Bagged leaves will not be accepted.
     
  • Leaves should not be placed where they may cause a hazard such as on the paved portion of the roadway, on sidewalks, in drainage ditches, within 10 feet of catch basins or in front of fire hydrants or mailboxes.
     
  • Note that leaf collection crews will NOT pick up brush or foreign matter left at roadside. Residents leaving brush piles in the roadway will be subject to penalty. 

Residents may bring leaves to the compost facility at the Bernardsville Landfill at 150 Pill Hill Road on Saturdays between 9:00am and 2:30pm both during and after the leaf collection season.
