Last Day For Bayonne Leaf Pick-Ups is Next Monday

Last Day for Bayonne Leaf Pick-Ups is Monday, December 21

Mayor Jimmy Davis reminded residents that the City of Bayonne’s final curbside pick-up of autumn leaves will take place on Monday, December 21, 2020.  Residents may place leaves in special eco-friendly leaf bags, in barrels, or in paper bags.  Plastic bags are unacceptable and will be rejected for pick-up.

The leaf bags can be picked up at the front door of City Hall from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  City employees will issue one packet of five bags per household at a time.  Due to the Coronavirus emergency, there will be no other locations for leaf bag distribution this year.

The term “leaves” means foliage only.  Specifically excluded from this definition are grass clippings, hedge clippings, tree parts, shrubbery and other types of vegetative waste.

Leaf collection will start early on Monday, December 21, at 6:00 a.m., so residents should put their leaves out next Sunday evening, December 20, to ensure pick-up.

After December 21, leaves can be put out with regular garbage for curbside pick-up.
