Fall 2017 Springfield Leaf Collection Update #1

As posted on the Department of Public Works website  and stated in the annual Department of Public Works bulletin, leaves may be placed at the curb for collection, either loose or in biodegradable bags beginning October 23rd. Residents are reminded not to block catch basins in order to minimize flooding. Public Works will begin curbside collection on October 30th and continue to canvass at least twice per season until winter weather interferes.  Only leaves will be collected, piles with debris other than leaves cannot be collected because of restrictions placed on the Township at the Compost Facility. Residents living on a Union County road have their leaves removed by County Division of Public Works. The County has published a schedule of collection for their streets in our town.  It can be viewed at http://ucnj.org/engineering-public-works-facilities-management/leaf-removal-schedule/

A leaf collection schedule will be published weekly on the Township website with advance notice of what areas DPW will canvas the following week.

Public Works will begin fall 2017 leaf collection next week with Area 1, Area 5 and Area 7.
