Beginning this Fall, the Town of Kearny will make changes to the leaf collection program in accordance with stricter State regulations regarding the disposal of leaves. All residents should place their leaves in biodegradable leaf bags and place them at the curb for pickup by the Department of Public Works. Residents should no longer place leaves in the street on street sweeping day. There is also no longer a need to call to schedule a pickup of leaf bags, as they will be picked up from October 28, 2019 to December 27, 2019.
