Leaf Collection Program
New Jersey Stormwater Management Regulations are in effect state-wide and must be observed.
Leaves cannot be placed at curbside prior to 7 days before your collection date and leaves must be kept a minimum of 10 ft. from any storm drain.
A FRIENDLY REMINDER: Be considerate to your neighbors when raking leaves to the curbside. Strong winds can make more work for you and your neighbors!
Tree limbs less than 6-inches in diameter and brush must be tied in bundles measuring no more than 4-feet in length or more than 3-feet in height and placed at the curb. Work crews will collect properly bundled tree limbs and brush according to the scheduled pick-up routes. Tree Limbs greater than 6-inches in diameter will not be collected.

WHAT IS STORMWATER POLLUTION? Water from rain and melting snow that flows over lawns, parking lots and streets is known as stormwater runoff. This water, which travels along gutters, into catch basins and through storm drain pipes and ditches, usually is not treated, but then flows or is discharged into local water bodies. Along the way, the stormwater picks up trash (fast-food wrappers, cigarette butts, styrofoam cups, etc.) and toxins and other pollutants (gas, motor oil, antifreeze, fertilizers, pesticides and pet droppings). This polluted stormwater can kill fish and other wildlife, destroy wildlife habitat, contaminate drinking water sources and force the closing of beaches because of health threats to swimmers. Human activity is largely responsible for the stormwater pollution. Everything that we put on the ground or into the storm drain can end up in our water. Each of us has a responsibility to make sure these contaminants stay out of our water. Whether we have clean water is up to you. Find out what you can do to protect the water.
