Belleville residents whose properties are on Essex County roads are advised that the county has scheduled leaf pickups on those streets on the following dates: Monday, Nov. 14, to Friday, Nov. 18; Monday, Dec. 12, to Friday, Dec. 16; and Monday, Jan. 9, to Friday, Jan. 13. (The last pickup will be made only if needed).
Residents are asked to coordinate their fall cleanup activities with the county and rake or place leaves at the curb the weekend before the scheduled pickup. They may place their leaves in biodegradable bags or sweep the loose leaves into piles at the curb.
In Nutley and Bloomfield, the county has entered into shared-services agreements, with the towns collecting the leaves. If your property is located on a county road in one of these communities, consult your municipal Public Works Department for more information or to obtain a schedule.
Residents who have general questions about the leaf collection may call the Essex County Department of Public Works at 973-239-3366, ext. 2220.
