From October 16th through December 15th, the Town of Kearny collects leaves from residents. Residents can rake their leaves into loose piles to the curbside for leaf collection or put their leaves in biodegradable bags for collection. The leaves collected are then ground up by the Town to create mulch or composted into a soil amendment that is available to residents.
If you prefer to put your leaves in biodegradable bags, residents may purchase biodegradable bags at the price of 10 for $5 at the Kearny Department of Public Works, 357 Bergen Avenue during the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Leaves in biodegradable bags will be collected on Fridays during this period. Residents should call the DPW @ 201-998-3700 to schedule a pick-up.
Finally, as a safety precaution, remember not to park cars on leaf piles as they are a fire hazard.
