The City of Newark will begin collecting leaves on the second Monday of October and continue through the end of December. In order to improve the service, neighborhoods will no longer have assigned days of the week for collection. Instead, trucks will continuously route through the city during the season. Residents are encouraged to rake leaves into piles (no bagging) to the grassy area between the sidewalk and curb at their convenience. Residents should expect collection once per week during the beginning of the season and once every other week during peak season.
