Fall Leaf Collection

Fall 2020 Collection Schedule: 

  • ALL STREETS WEST OF WILLARD AVENUE: First collection scheduled for the week of Nov. 2 through Nov. 7
  • ALL STREETS EAST OF WILLARD AVENUE:  First collection scheduled for the week of Nov. 9 through Nov. 14

Depending on weather conditions, crews may enter into a section ahead of schedule or remain in an area longer than anticipated. Please keep in mind, that an early snowfall hinders our collection efforts. Therefore, residents are advised to rake leaves to the curb as soon as possible and use the above schedule as a guideline only. Collection schedules can be obtained through the Town’s website at www.newingtonct.gov or by calling the Highway Department at 667-5810.  

General Information:

The leaf collection program operates during the months of November and December and consists of 24 full and part time employees including Parks and Grounds personnel.

  • Over 14,000 cubic yards of leaves are collected and processed each year.
  • Leaves are collected curbside on all Town roads, then transported to the Town Landfill for processing.

Leaf Collection Guidelines:

  • The Town will make at least two passes through each street (weather permitting). 
  • Do not block sidewalks or rake leaves into the street  
  • Leaves in barrels, plastic bags, cardboard boxes  or mixed with branches, sticks,  household trash or any foreign matter will not be picked up 
  • State law requires leaves to be collected separately from the trash. Do not put leaves or grass in your rubbish or recycling containers as they will not be picked up 
  • Residents have the option of bringing their leaves to the Town’s landfill on Main Street just south of Churchill Park.  The landfill is open Saturday and Sunday 9-5. Residents do not need a disposal permit to dispose of leaves at the landfill, however proof of residency will be required.

The success of the Leaf Collection program is greatly dependent on the weather. Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
