WESTFIELD, NJ — The Town Council’s public works committee is seeking feedback on Westfield’s 2020 leaf collection program, officials said.

A survey posted to the town’s website asks residents about the past year’s program for leaf pickup, which included the debut of free leaf bags among other features, the town announced.

Councilman David Contract, who chairs the public works committee, said the town is encouraging residents to think about different ways they can dispose of their leaves.

The town’s focus is, “Not to stop picking up leaves the way that we do but rather let’s offer alternatives,” Contract said Tuesday.

The survey says that residents’ input will help the town to improve future leaf collection.

Among other questions, the survey asks residents to identify how they dispose of their leaves in addition to their satisfaction with the town’s leaf collection program last year.

Correction: A prior version of this story incorrectly described changes to the town’s leaf collection program. Leaves may still be piled curbside for pickup during collection season.
