Ewing Mayor Proposes Upgrades to Leaf Pickup Services with New Truck-Mounted Leaf Vacuum System

In response to feedback from residents, Mayor Bert H. Steinmann is pleased to announce a significant improvement to the residential curbside leaf pickup program.

A resolution will soon be advanced to the council to invest in a state-of-the-art truck-mounted leaf vacuum system. This new system will allow residents to once again deposit leaves at the curb for pickup by the township.

“We’ve heard our residents loud and clear,” said Mayor Steinmann. “Our goal is to make leaf disposal as convenient and efficient as possible. The reason we switched to collection in bags was to comply with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s updated stormwater management rules and regulations. This new equipment will ensure that leaves are collected quickly and effectively, putting the township in compliance with the DEP’s guidelines.”

The truck-mounted leaf vacuum system will operate during November and December, with pickups scheduled on a cycle by specific zones throughout the township. This system not only streamlines the process for residents but also enhances the township’s ability to manage leaf collection sustainably and effectively.

Detailed information about the new leaf pickup schedule and zone-specific collection dates will be provided to residents ahead of the fall season. “We are committed to ensuring a smooth transition to this improved service and appreciate the community’s ongoing support and patience,” Mayor Steinmann added.
