Vegetative waste collection in cans and in paper bags has ended as of 10/16/20, as marked on the 2020 garbage & recycling pickup schedule calendars. Vegetative waste collection in cans and in paper bags will resume April 2021. From 10/17/20 - 12/4/20, please put your leaves and grass directly on the street in piles by the curb. Please keep leaf and grass piles away from storm drain grates. Vegetative waste will not be picked up in cans again until April 2021. Please place all leaves and grass in piles directly on the street by the curb. If you have branches, please cut the branches into 4 feet lengths, bundle the branches, tie the branches, and place the branches in a separate pile at the curb. From 10/17/20 - 12/4/20, there is no longer a scheduled pickup day for leaves, grass, and branches (cut into 4 feet, bundled, tied & in separate pile). From 10/19/20 through the beginning of December, the DPW will be going street by street through the Borough collecting leaves, grass, and branches (cut into 4 feet, bundled, tied & in separate pile). The DPW will make several rounds to collect, but please put your material out as soon as possible (before 12/4/20). The approximate area where the DPW ended collection each day, and the approximate area where the DPW will begin collection the next day, will be posted on the Borough website each week day (except for holidays) beginning on 10/26/20. Please check the Borough website for daily collection updates beginning 10/26/20, so that you will have a general idea of where the DPW will be collecting leaves/grass/branches day to day: www.bergenfield.com. Please remember that 12/4/20 will be the last day that leaves/grass/branches can be placed on the street for pickup. After 12/4/20, any remaining leaves/grass/branches must be held until April 2021 when weekly vegetative waste collection in cans and in paper bags resumes. Please place all of your leaves/grass/branches (cut into 4 feet, bundled, tied & in separate pile) in the street on or before 12/4/20.
