Leaf Removal
Quadrant You Live In Age Years Living in Verona Comments
Unanswered 30 to 45 6 to 10 Other towns allow for leaves to be raked to the curb. It eases the effort required and seems to be more efficient so that leaves do not remain unraked.
North East 30 to 45 Under 1 bags are too small
North East 46 to 60 Over 10 I think they could be a little less particular with branch and twig removal
North East Over 60 Over 10 In the Fall the schedule seems to be followed.
North West 30 to 45 Over 10 Leaf collection is good, but the way the leaf dump is operated should be reviewed. Outside landscapers dump there for free...... at taxpayers expense. I'm paying to have extra leaves hauled away and i rake,bag and haul my own leaves to the dumps myself, but yet i'm paying for these landscapers.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 should have a definite day assigned, or better yet, have leaf removal like cedar grove
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 While they come get the bags, they don't seem to pick up the leaves that have fallen in the street. Again, we end up doing it which can be very dangerous.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 There is NO leaf removal. All the towns around Verona all for curb side pickup. Our town has NO such program. Believe we should investigate the purchase of equipment and cost of picking up leaves from street curbs.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 we only have leaf bag pickup - no removal & we purchase our bags
North West Over 60 6 to 10 Greater access to the drop off area would be useful.
South East 30 to 45 1 to 5 Never know when they're going to pick up.
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 I do not use.
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 bag em, leave em, and their gone. keep the bagging system. NO LEAVES IN THE STREET. very dangerous and blocks traffic flow.
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 Leaves should be allowed to be raked into the streets.
South East 46 to 60 6 to 10 They pick up the bags... eventually. I have four large town owned trees on my property and it is a big hassle bagging all those leaves. It takes up a lot of our time! We spend at least 3 weekends bagging leaves... and I mean working all day! I'd like to have the leaves picked up from the street like they do in Montclair.
South East 46 to 60 Over 10 what is role of township in this regard? after 12 years, not sure township has a role; I have to remove theleaves from my property.
South East Over 60 Over 10 Do we have one?
South West Under 30 1 to 5 We have a very large piece of property and cannot affort to hire a landscaper. Having to bag leaves is a huge inconvenience and takes away time from our family and children pretty much every weekend during the fall months. Being able to just blow our leaves into the street for pickup would cut this job in half and be a huge timesaver. With all the money we spend on taxes there should be a "leaf-sucking" machine like they have in Cedar Grove.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 should not be a limit on the number of bags they take from each residence each week. I understand the limit is 15 per household - this seems low during peek leaf season,
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 we have none
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 In West Orange, we swept the leaves to the curb. Bagging seems so old fashioned. I also wish that those who DO sweep their leaves to the curb would be fined. Look especially at the houses along Lakeside Avenue.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 why can't they be collected from the street like in Montclair?
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 I would like more sunday hours at the leaf dump
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 My landscaper removes the leaves from my property.
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 The town should institute vacuuming of leaves to lighten the burden for the residents
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 The streets are covered with leaves.
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 But wish that we didn't have to bag the leaves.... Raking them into the street for the Township to remove them would be so much easier
South West Over 60 Over 10 sweeper is never used. Other towns have leaves in street ready for collected and they know when the sweeper will arrive. Why do we have to hire people to remore our leaves if we are physically unable to do so?
