Haddonfield leaf collection pushed back

Board of Commissioners issues statement updating usual autumn effort

leafHaddonfield’s Board of Commissioners issued a statement late Friday, revealing that leaf collection efforts throughout the borough will not begin in earnest until after Nov. 5.

“It has been determined that due to the continued slow leaf fall this season, Haddonfield’s Department of Public Works will be delaying their major leaf collection effort through the week of Nov. 5. We will, however, continue sending out a couple of trucks, as we did for the week of Oct. 29, to get those loose leaves that are out now, but this will not count toward our guaranteed three pick-ups.

“We expect to start collection in full force the week of Nov. 12 and go through the week of Dec. 17. We will still guarantee three collections at each address.

During leaf collection daily updates are available on the Borough website, our Facebook page, and notices will be emailed to those who have signed up through our website (e-notify sign-up) that new information is available for review.”

At its previous board meeting on Oct. 23, commissioner John Moscatelli indicated that collection would be delayed from Oct. 29 to Nov. 5, with an eye toward pushing that date back as weather permitted.
