BAYONNE, NJ – City residents are reminded that Bayonne’s final curbside pick-up of leaves will take place this Monday, Dec. 5.

Residents may put leaves in eco-friendly leaf bags, in barrels or in paper bags. Plastic bags are unacceptable and will not be picked up. 

Mayor James Davis urges residents to utilize this last leaf collection of the season.

“Recent storms and heavy winds have brought down many leaves,” Davis said. “Before winter starts, it would be best to remove the leaves from the sidewalks and ground. Otherwise, they will be stuck under the snow during the winter.” 

The term “leaves” means foliage only. Excluded from this definition are grass clippings, hedge clippings, tree parts, shrubbery and other types of vegetative waste. 

Leaf collection will start early on Monday at 6 a.m., so residents should put their leaves out Sunday evening, Dec. 4, to ensure pick-up.
