Release Date: October 20, 2014

Beginning November 3, 2014 through December 31, 2014, bagged leaf collection will take place.  Leaves may be placed at curbside in brown recycling bags or open rigid containers with handles; plastic bags are unacceptable.  No more than 20 bags/containers can be placed at curbside with weight not exceeding 50 pounds each. Place leaves at curbside the day after your normally scheduled garbage collection day. If collection day is Saturday, pick-up will be the next business day.
Non-containerized gutter leaves will be picked up from October 27, 2014 through January 23, 2015 according to the schedule below.  Due to Storm Water Management Regulations (N.J.A.C. 7:8), municipalities are required to follow strict guidelines for minimizing non-point source pollution; therefore, non- containerized leaves shall not be placed in the gutter no more than seven (7) days prior to scheduled pick up date and leaves cannot be closer than ten (10) feet from the storm drain.
Branches must be cut no longer than four (4) feet and twined in bundles not to exceed 35 pounds. Brush must also be twined into bundles. Brush/branches should be placed at curbside separate from leaves.
The City of Trenton encourages residents to bag leaves.  Bagged leaves expedite collection and alleviate street flooding.
Leaves mixed with debris will not be collected.
Inclement weather may necessitate changes to the collection schedule.
Please contact the City at 989-3175 or 989-3200 if you require more information.
