Leaf Removal - Autumn
County Roadways ONLY please contact Essex County for their leaf pickup schedule at (973) 239-3366.
Instructions for South Orange roadways: Refer to the online Leaf Map at southorange.org> Community Maps>Leaf Map to ensure your zone is opened for leaves to be placed out. Abiding by the leaf map significantly reduces how long leaves are sitting out prior to the Department circling back to a zone, reducing the potential for clogged storm drains and flooding concerns.
Leaves should be piled no more than four feet from the curb, and must not extend into traffic lanes. Leaves may be placed in brown biodegradable for pickup, plastic bags are not permitted and will not be collected. Leaves can be raked into gutters during leaf season only. Any rake out after this time will be in violation of municipal ordinances and the leaves will not be picked up. During leaf season, no debris other than leaves are permitted. Residents are responsible to notify their landscapers/contractors to place leaves out according to Township guidelines.
The last day for all residents to place remaining leaves curbside is December 11th, which allows for the Department to complete a final sweep of the Village roads.
