Leaf Season


Leaf Season will begin for South Orange on Monday, October 26th.

Residents must refer to the Leaf Map to ensure leaves are being placed out only when their zone shows "open" in green.  When the map reflects red in a zone residents are not permitted to place leaves out and will be subject to a penalty for violation of Township ordinances.  Residents are responsible to notify their landscapers/contractors to place leaves out according to Township guidelines.
