2018 Leaf Collection Schedule for Essex County Roads



Leaves May Be Placed in Biodegradable Bags or Swept to the Curb

Essex County, NJ – Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. announced Essex County’s 2018 Leaf Collection Schedule for County Roads. Residents whose properties are on County Roads may place their leaves in biodegradable bags or sweep the loose leaves into piles at the curb.

To organize leaf collection on County roads, Essex County is divided into four sectors. There will be three pickups in each section of the County. DiVincenzo has asked residents on County roads to check the county leaf collection schedule and coordinate their fall cleanup activities with the County. Leaves should be swept to the curb or placed in biodegradable bags at the curb no more than seven days before the scheduled pickup time. In addition, residents are asked to pile leaves at least 10 feet from a storm drain.

The following schedule lists the four sectors, the municipalities included in each section and the collection times when leaves will be picked up in each section.

  • Section I: (Cedar Grove, Millburn and West Orange) Monday, November 19th to Friday, November 23rd; and Monday, December 17th to Friday, December 21st

  • Section II: (South Orange and Maplewood) Monday, October 29th to Friday, November 2nd; Monday, November 26th to Friday, November 30th; and Monday, December 24th to Friday, December 28th

  • Section III: (Belleville and East Orange) Monday, November 5th to Friday, November 9th; Monday, December 3rd to Friday, December 7th; and Monday, December 31st to Friday, January 4, 2019 (The last pick up will be made only if it is needed).

  • Section IV: (Irvington, Newark and Orange) Tuesday, November 13th to Friday, November 16th; Monday, December 10th to Friday, December 14th; and Monday, January 8, 2019 to Friday, January 11, 2019 (The last pick up will be made only if it is needed).

Essex County has entered into shared services agreements with Bloomfield, Caldwell, Essex Fells, Fairfield, Glen Ridge, Livingston, Montclair, North Caldwell, Nutley, Roseland, Verona and West Caldwell. In these municipalities, the local Department of Public Works will collect leaves on County roads. If your property is located on a County road in one of these towns, please consult your municipal Public Works Department for more information or to obtain a schedule.
