Ridgewood Leaf Collection Begins Monday

Check out the map to see when the Streets Department is coming by your area.

The village council still must officially pass its new-but-old leaf collection ordinance at its next public meeting on Oct. 24, but leaf collection will start humming along on Monday with the season's first collection.

Those in Area A will be the first to see the front loaders and vacuums in their neighborhoods. Area A is the northeast section of Ridgewood, north of Maple Avenue, west of Colonial, Fairway and Wall Street to the Ho-Ho-Kus Border.

The following day, Oct. 24, is Area B's turn. The area contains the village downtown and the northwest section of town (mostly the Willard school area).

Collection in Area C (the southeast part of Ridgewood, including Somerville and The Lawns) starts up on Monday, Oct. 29, and Area D (southwest section of Ridgewood, including Orchard School) on Halloween, Wednesday Oct. 31.  

The village will be enforcing the DEP's 7-day rule, meaning piles can be placed in the streets for residents living in areas A and B, but not in C until Monday or Area D until Wednesday.

Mum plants and pumpkins can be included with leaves, but items with attached wires are prohibited.

Brush and branches are expressly prohibited from being in leaf piles. Those items should be processed at the Recycling Center on E. Glen Avenue.

Check out the map posted above to see which area your home is in.

We are in area A for leaf collection, and at the same time are Area 1 for recyclables...how are the street sweepers going to collect leaves while all the recyclable containers are at the curb?

My leaves go in the street, and my recycling containers stay up on the curb. I'm not sure where the conflict is...

In our neighborhood do not have sidewalks, and always have placed our recyclables in the street "next" to the curb.

Ah, I gotcha. Still, it should be possible to keep the bins/cans at the end of the driveway or something without getting in the way of the leaf pickup I suppose.

We are in Area A and Area 1 for recycling. The leaf vac came by early today and the recycling truck a while later. It was no problem at all. We had leaves bagged on the curb, neighbors had big piles in the street. Also had recycle can/crates out and it all went just fine. Glad to see them get here when the schedule said they would, good job with it so far.

Looking at the map, isn't Area A northeast and Area B northwest?
Lori Chiavelli October 22, 2012 at 03:34 PM
Glad it worked out without any problems. We can keep the bins on the lawn/driveway on the multitask days as J.D. suggested.

My fault, I transposed them. Fixed! Thanks.

The law “is stuck http://www.coachoutletmls.com in a Jim Crow-era time warp,” said Edward P. Blum, director of the Project on http://www.hermesbeltsoutletsc.com Fair Representation, a small legal foundation that helped organize http://www.coachfactoryonlineen.com the suit. Civil rights leaders, on the other hand, pointed http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlineau.com to the role the law played in the recent election, http://www.coachoutletuso.net with courts relying on it to block voter http://www.coachbagsoutletel.com identification requirements and cutbacks on early voting. http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com “In the midst of the recent assault on voter access, the http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com Voting Rights Act is playing a pivotal role beating http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net back discriminatory voting measures,” said Debo P. http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net Adegbile, the acting president of the NAACP Legal Defense http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com and Educational Fund.
