The Department of Public Works collects bagged leaves in the fall. All leaves must be left at curbside for collection. Leaves will only be collected if they are in brown biodegradable paper bags. This collection runs from September until the first weekend in December.
All grass, leaves, and brush are accepted with a residential compost permit at Allendale’s Compost Site. This permit can be purchased at Borough Hall for $30. There is no curbside collection of grass and brush. Please note that landscapers and contractors are not allowed to use the compost site. Click here for more information about the compost site.
The hours of operation at the compost are Saturday 9am to 5pm and Sunday 1pm to 5pm, from April through mid-December.
