×

Bayonne’s final curbside pickup of autumn leaves will take place on Monday, Dec. 21, Mayor James Davis announced.

Residents may place leaves in special eco-friendly leaf bags, in barrels, or in paper bags. Plastic bags are unacceptable and will be rejected.

The leaf bags can be picked up at the front door of City Hall from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. City employees will issue one packet of five bags per household at a time.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no other locations for leaf bag distribution this year.

The term β€œleaves” means foliage only. Specifically excluded are grass clippings, hedge clippings, tree parts, shrubbery, and other types of vegetative waste.

Leaf collection will start on Monday, Dec. 21, at 6 a.m. Residents should put their leaves out on Sunday evening, Dec. 20, to ensure pick up.

After Dec. 21, leaves can be put out with regular garbage for curbside pickup.
