MONTCLAIR, NJ - The Township of Montclair has issued the following announcement from Police Captain Kenneth Miscia and the Office of Emergency Management:

Due to a milder, fall there are still many trees in the Township with leaves on them. This coupled with the snowfall around Thanksgiving has delayed fall cleanup for many homes. Therefore, per Township Ordinance # 217-6, I am extending the use of internal combustion leaf blowers until Tuesday, December 30, with the exception that no internal combustion leaf blowers will be allowed to be used on Friday, December 25.

The Township’s formal fall leaf collection program guidelines are as follows:

Weekly leaf bag collections will end on Friday, December 19, as posted. However, leaf bags will continue to be collected on the recycling day through January, weather permitting, if placed at the curb.

The leaf bag collection after December 19 will be more random and it may not be weekly and may not be on the recycling day.

The Department of Community Services (DCS) suggests that residents who place leaf bags at the curb after December 19 call the DCS office at 973-509-5711. Although this is not required, it may expedite the collection, since crews may not make complete rounds regularly throughout the town.

In the event of snow, leaf bags should not be left in the street. They should be brought in from the curb and replaced after the snow cleanup has been completed.
