IMPORTANT NOTICE CONCERNING VILLAGE OF RIDGEWOOD LEAF REMOVAL – REVISED SCHEDULE
As you may have heard in our continuing efforts to improve services, a new leaf removal program will begin with the upcoming leaf season. The preponderant portion of Area B will be outsourced to a private contractor for the removal of leaves. This change is being implemented so that our resources can be better utilized by providing more manpower and extending collection times in all areas to achieve the services that Ridgewood residents deserve.
Residents in Area B will remain the same with the exception of the following streets which will now be considered “Area D” for leaf season only.
N. Monroe St. (house #108 to #412)
Valley View Ave.
Woodland Ave. (house #116 – #223)
NEW dates for collection are as follows:
Area A: Oct. 20 – 23, Nov. 6 – 13, Dec. 1-5
Area B: Oct. 22 – 28, Nov. 6 – 12, Nov. 24 – 28, Dec. 11 – 17
Area C: Oct. 24 – 29, Nov. 14 – 19, Dec. 8 – 12
Area D: Oct. 30 – Nov. 5, Nov. 20 – 26, Dec. 15 – 19
Leaves must be placed directly in the street no more than 7 days prior to your scheduled pick up date. Please have your leaves in the street on the first day scheduled for collection. No brush will be collected during leaf season. You may continue to bring leaves as well as brush to the Recycling Center. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Leaves can also be placed in paper biodegradable bags. Bags are available at the Recycling Center on a first come, first serve basis. When using bags please place them on the curb area and they will be collected separately. As weather is a key component to this operation if changes become necessary it will be posted on the Village of Ridgewood website. In addition you are encouraged to sign up for e-mail notifications via the Village website. As a reminder, please use caution when our leaf removal crews are on your block. When possible please take an alternate route to ensure the safety of all. Should you have any questions, please call the Street Division (201) 670-5585.
Our new motto is – “Leave” no leaf behind!
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
