Fall 2017 Springfield Leaf Collection Update Week #9 (Final)

Area 3, Area 8 and Area 9 are scheduled for third round leaf collection by Department of Public Works crews beginning Friday, December 22nd. Crews will also canvass the entire town one last time for any remaining piles through December 29, 2017 after which point no more leaves will be collected.

The Department of Public Works began canvassing the town for first round leaf collection starting Tuesday, November 1st.  All areas have been canvassed at least twice and to date, over 10,000 cubic yards of leaves have been collected.  The third and final round of leaf collection started Monday, December 11th.

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. 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.

Public Works will begin curbside collection on October 30th and continue to canvass at least twice per season until winter weather interferes.  There is no specific street schedule available.  A leaf collection schedule will be published weekly on the Township website with advance notice of what areas DPW will canvas the following week.  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/
