Leaf Collection Begins

 N O T I C E   

For Release: November 3, 2022


Tarrytown Department of Public Works to begin annual service of collecting leaves from village streets

November 7 to December 7, 2022

The hours of leaf collection occur during a normal DPW work day - 7:00a.m to 3:00 p.m. according to the schedule beginning the second week of November. On the day of your scheduled collection, please refrain from parking on the street to allow DPW crews to safely and efficiently collect the leaf piles. Due to conditions beyond our control, your scheduled day may be delayed.

The following rules apply to leaf collection and will be strictly enforced by Code Enforcement or Tarrytown PD:

1. Leaves must not be placed at the curb prior to the weekend before your scheduled collection date.

2. Leaves must be piled at the edge of the curb and NOT in the travel lane of the road.

3. Leaf piles mixed with any other materials – brush, twigs, pumpkins, etc. – will not be collected. The County of Westchester only accepts leaves.

4. All leaves placed curbside prior to the beginning and after the conclusion of the leaf collection season must be placed in biodegradable paper bags to be collected during normal organic collection (Thursdays).

5. In addition to our leaf collection schedule, organics placed in bio-degradable bags and small neatly piled brush will continue to be picked up on Thursday’s Organic collection.

6. The schedule is subject to change depending on unforeseen conditions and weather. If your collection is missed, you will be picked up a day or two later.

7. The collection schedule can be found in the “DPW Information Packet” on the DPW webpage. https://www.tarrytownny.gov/sites/g/files/vyhlif1306/f/uploads/dpwinfo_packet2022_002_read-only.pdf
