SUMMIT, NJ - Curbside leaf collection, which sees the City of Summit's Department of Public Works (DPW) picking up bagged leaves, will begin on Monday, October 7 and continue through Friday, December 6 or the first major snow event.

Collection will occur on regularly scheduled garbage pickup days. Leaves must be placed in biodegradable brown bags and placed at the curb. Residents may also bring leaves to the Summit Transfer Station -- located at 40 New Providence Ave.

Leaves collected in the spring and fall are composted and are made available to the public in the spring for use on lawns and in gardens.
