2015 Leaf Collection Information

Municipal crews will start collecting leaves at the curb-line beginning Monday, November 9, and will continue through December 15, weather permitting. Collection occurs weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Two (2) separate and complete passes through the Borough will be necessary to complete the entire leaf collection program.

Residents do not need to call and schedule for leaf collection. Borough crews will collect all leaves placed at the curb-line during the collection program. Please check the Borough of Fair Lawn website at for continuous updates and changes in the collection program.

Systematic collection will be maintained for each of the five (5) sections starting in Section 1 and continuing through the remaining four (4) sections. This will ensure efficient borough wide service, and help avoid leaf piles lying along the curb-line for extended periods. Again, continuous updates and changes in the collection program will be announced on the Borough’s website, Weather conditions and leaf fall amounts may impact the collection program.

No leaves may be put at the curb-line for pickup after the following dates:
• SECTION #’s 1 & 5 – NOVEMBER 29
Please follow these guidelines to ensure safe and efficient services:
• DO NOT pile leaves around parked cars, street lights, or fire hydrants.
• DO NOT put trash, stones, etc… into leaf piles.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY from leaf piles that are ready for collection.
• AVOID PARKING on street in cul-de-sacs (leaf machines cannot enter tight spaces).
• Once the leaf crew passes your section for second time, collection in section is complete and crews WILL NOT return.
State storm water regulations prohibit placing any vegetative waste within 10 feet of a storm drain.
