LEAF COLLECTION BEGINS OCTOBER 30, 2023
Each fall, from late October through early December, the massive job of collecting leaves begins. The Borough will provide 3 pickups during leaf season; only piles will be collected, and collection times are 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This year, leaf collection begins on Monday, October 30, and will start in the REVERSE ORDER with the FRIDAY trash route, then Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday, and Monday.
Please know that it can take up to a week to finish one trash route day!
DO's & DONT'S FOR LEAF SEASON
- Do rake leaves to the parking strip into piles.
- Don't put leaves in bags.
- Don't rake leaves into the street; leaves in the street cause stormwater drainage issues. Leaf piles in the street violate ordinance 195-9, and will receive a summons. Tell landscapers not to put leaves in the street!
- Don't include sticks, branches, ivy, grass, bamboo, or flowers in the piles; they clog the machine.
- Don't park cars in front of the parking strip on collection day.
*Nightly notifications of the truck's progress will be sent on the Haddonfield Happenings App!
SCHEDULE CHANGES DURING LEAF SEASON
- The weekly Chipper ends third week of October and resumes monthly in January 2024.
- Weekly Vegetative Waste ends week of October 23, on the trash day - Winter Monthly pickup starts in November.
