UPDATE: Edison Restores Its ‘Free Leaf Bag Program’ for Residents

Edison Leaf Bags Are Back Credits: Edison Township

EDISON, NJ - Leaf bags are back in Edison! Homeowners can once again get a supply of brown-paper leaf bags from Edison Town Hall after the Lankey Administration found a more cost-efficient way to restore the popular service.

"Many homeowners told us they really missed Edison’s leaf bag distribution program,” said Mayor Thomas Lankey. “This is precisely the kind of service that people count on from local government. We’re proud to be able to restore it.”

According to the Edison Township website, due to unforeseen circumstances, the leaf bag shipment has been delayed by the distributor. Starting on Monday, October 6th, homeowners can pick up their allotment of leaf bags in packets of 20 or 40. They will be available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Edison Municipal Complex, 100 Municipal Blvd., off Route 27. An extra week of distribution will be added.

Leaf bags also will be distributed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays: Oct. 4th, Oct. 11th and Oct. 18th.

Edison bought 200,000 biodegradable leaf bags through the Somerset County Cooperative Pricing System. “Making purchases like our leaf bags through the co-op enables town to obtain much better rates and prices for taxpayers,” said Business Administrator Maureen Ruane.

Edison – like many Central Jersey towns – previously made such purchases through the Piscataway Cooperative Pricing Council, but that co-op was dissolved in 2012.
