According to the Borough newsletter this would be the last week for the Maintenance Department to pick up leaves from the streets. However, it appears that many trees are not cooperating and are holding on to their leaves. Therefore, the Borough will extend the program through December 9th. This will depend on the weather.
Freezing temperatures are the main reason the program is usually not extended past the middle of December. There have been years when it has rained or snowed on top of the leaf piles, and then they get frozen in place. This is not good for snow plows or the plow drivers.
Please remember that the “No Parking” regulations are posted in many neighborhoods and are in effect through the end of December. The Borough will do street sweeping on those days until the end of the year, weather permitting.
