Ridgewood NJ, All residents have received a yellow postcard with the leaf collection program requirements. A copy of the postcard is attached to this E-Notice, so that you can print it out if you wish to do so. The leaf collection areas are based on yardwaste areas (A-D), with certain exceptions listed for Area D, during leaf season only. The leaf collection is currently on schedule. The schedule will be updated on the Village website, www.ridgewoodnj.net, as needed. Please click on the swirling leaf icon for more information. All areas have been picked up once and some are putting out their leaves for their second leaf placement, at this time.
Leaves are to be placed along the curbline, in the street, only during the leaf placement dates listed for your area on the postcard. You may not place leaves into the street after the last leaf placement date for your area, until the next round of leaf placement dates for your area. If you employ a landscaper, please communicate your leaf placement dates to them. Please be aware that leaves placed in the street, after the street is complete, may result in a summons being issued.
No brush will be collected during leaf season. In addition, do not place trash, stones, branches, twigs or other yardwaste into the leaf piles.
You may place your leaves in biodegradable paper bags, between the curb and sidewalk (not in the street), at any time and they will be picked up by our collection crews, as time permits. Do not use plastic bags for leaf collection. You may also bring your leaves to the Recycling Center during their regular hours.
To locate your area for yardwaste collection, go to the Village website www.ridgewoodnj.net, click on My Village Services Lookup and enter your address to find your respective area.
