If there is any thing we have in abundance in Medford Lakes, it’s leaves. And they just keep coming! But, on the bright side, they provide us with cool shade in the summer and lot’s of exercise in the fall raking them up!
All kidding aside, you can do yourself and the Borough a favor by composting leaves in place in a section of your property. You’ll save yourself the trouble of clearing leaves from those areas and save the Taxpayers the expense of Leaf Disposal.
Collection by Voting District
Leaf collection is by voting district. Each fall the order of the voting districts is rotated so that no particular district is always first or last collected. Your zone can be found below.
