Leaf/Yard Waste Collection

Residents: 

     The October 29th Storm generated an unprecedented amount of downed tree branches and debris throughout the city. DPW has already removed hundreds of tons of material from city streets and continues to do so daily. Residents are still in the process of removing limbs and leaves from their yards and we want to ensure ample opportunity for disposal. The enormous amount of extra debris has also taken a considerable toll on equipment and disrupted our leaf collection schedule despite our best efforts.

     Please rest assured that we are doing everything we can to remove all of the debris in the appropriate period of time. Factors we are considering include: continuing disposal of limbs and leaves from yards; overtime budget; weather; traffic flow; maintenance of equipment, etc.

     Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

City of Hackensack
