MADISON, NJ - Fall leaf collection begins today, October 21 in Madison. Residents can dispose of leaves in three ways, states Borough officials.
Leave contains at the curb
According to officials, this is the preferred method of leaf disposal. There will be weekly curbside collection of yard waste. The curbside collection will continue through December. Residents are able to receive up to 10 free bags per trip at the Public Works Garage and Borough Offices
Bring leaves to the municipal garage
On weekdays from mid October through early December, residents may bring leaves to the Municipal Garage between the hours of 7:30am - 3pm. Commercial dumping of leaves is not allowed.
Rake leaves to the curb
This is the least preferred method of leaf removal, stated officials. It is expensive and can cause traffic and storm water management issues, they stated. If residents are raking the leaves to the curb, officials ask that this be done as soon as possible so that borough employees can use front end loaders for pickup when the leaves are wet.
