LEAF COLLECTION 2013
The Town Code in Chapter 246 Article VI 246-32 E states that leaves shall be placed in the streets no sooner than seven days prior
to a scheduled or announced collection date and shall be placed no closer than 10 ft. to any storm
Failure to follow the schedule will result in a warning letter and in some cases, a summons
will be issued.
Listed, are the instructions to follow again this year: (1) Find your street on the enclosed
schedule; and (2) put your leaves into the street on the weekends indicated. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL
MONDAY to put your leaves into the streets because we cannot guarantee that we will be on any
particular street on any particular day. We plan on making two (2) passes through town, weather
permitting, so your street should appear twice on the schedule.
In case of snow on the weekend indicated, please consult our website for further
instructions. Our website can be found at www.Boonton.org.
In case you miss your collection date or if you do not want to wait, you can bring your leaves
to the Town’s Recycling Center. Throughout the leaf collection season, the center will be open to
accept leaves; Monday – Friday 8am-11:45am and 12:45pm-3pm; Saturday 8am-12pm; Veteran’s
Day & the Friday after Thanksgiving 9am-1pm.
