NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Fall Leaf Collection will begin in the City of New Rochelle on Tuesday, Oct. 13 and conclude at the end of December. All leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper bags or open containers weighing no more than 75 lbs. for collection. Remember: Loose leaves will not be picked up.

This year, weekly leaf collection will follow four routes. Bags and containers can be placed at the curb anytime but must be placed at curb by 7 a.m. on the following days for pickup:

North End

  • Monday: North side of Quaker Ridge Road to Scarsdale border.
  • Tuesday: North side of Eastchester Road, Beechmont Drive and Barnard Road, to the south side of Quaker Ridge Road.

South End

  • Wednesday: North side of Metro North Railroad to the south side of Eastchester Road, Beechmont Drive and Barnard Road
  • Thursday: South of Metro North Railroad

If a holiday occurs on any of the scheduled pickup days, Friday is the alternate pickup day. There will be no collection Thanksgiving week. Yard waste collection concludes Oct. 30. The City kindly asks that you do not mix yard waste with leaves.

Licensed landscapers and gardeners can dispose of leaves at the City’s Yard Waste Transfer Site at 85 Beechwood Ave. Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Vouchers can be purchased from the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, 515 North Avenue, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Rather than raking, bagging, or transporting fall leaves off site this year; consider mulching, a sustainable alternative that actually benefits lawns and gardens! Mulch mowing demonstrations will be held in October as follows:

  • Saturday, Oct. 17 at 4 p.m. New Rochelle HS, North Avenue in front of Twin Lakes Park
  • Saturday, Oct. 24 at 11a.m. - GROW! Lincoln Park Community Garden
  • Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 3 p.m. - College of New Rochelle

The benefits of mulch mowing include:

  • • A healthy property: Mulching recycles nutrients into the soil to feed lawns & plants,
  • provides a free natural fertilizer, and helps retain moisture.
  • • Savings of time and effort: Mulching in place is easier and faster than raking or blowing
  • leaves.
  • • Helping the environment: Leaf piles block streets and traffic, clog storm drains, and
  • result in excess nutrient runoff (phosphorus & nitrogen), polluting our waterways.
  • Transporting and disposing of grass and leaves as yard waste wastes energy and contributes
  • to pollution, too.

Additional leaf collection information is available on the City’s website or by calling (914) 235-4029.
