The Town of Kearny’s fall leaf program will begin the week of October 26, 2020. All residents should place their leaves into biodegradable leaf bags and place the bags at the curb for pickup. Residents should no longer place leaves in the street on street sweeping day. There is also no longer a need to call to schedule a pickup of leaf bags, as they will be picked up from October 26, 2020 to January 8, 2021, in accordance with the following schedule:
Monday Zone 3 – Labeled Green on zoning map
Tuesday Zone 2 – Labeled Red on zoning map
Wednesday Zone – 1 – Labeled Blue on zoning map
Thursday Zone 3 – Labeled Green on zoning map
Friday Zone 4 – Labeled Yellow on zoning map
Zone map is below.
Leaf bags may be purchased at the Kearny DPW, 357 Bergen Ave., from Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8AM and 4PM (10 bags for $5.00). Residents also may purchase biodegradable bags from a retailer of their choice.
Please note that only leaves should be placed in leaf bags. Grass, twigs and any other yard waste is to be disposed of with your regular garbage pickup.
Once again, leaves should not be placed in the street. If you are serviced by a private landscaper, please inform them that they will either have to bag the leaves and place them at the curb or haul them away. A warning notice will be issued to any resident who places their leaves in the street. If you have questions, please call the DPW at (201) 998-3700.
