Keeping Clarkstown Clean

Fall is here and the beautiful picturesque landscape around us will soon lead us to raking leaves in our yards. 

The Highway Department wants to help you keep your properties clean and attractive. We will provide curbside loose leaf pick-up for Town residents (except in the Village of Spring Valley and the Village of Upper Nyack) between November 1st and December 23, 2021.

Please help us by following the dates and rules outlined in this brochure.

Be sure to have all loose leaves curbside no later than December 3, 2021 to ensure that they are picked up before our leaf pick up collection ends. There is no leaf pick up after December 6th, as we have to remove leaf pick up equipment from our trucks to prepare for snow removal.

Loose Leaf Pick-Up Program

  • Pile loose or biodegradable bagged leaves on your lawn or curbside no earlier than November 1st and no later than December 23, 2021.
  • Plastic bags are not acceptable.
  • Pick-up of yard waste including brush, twigs, branches, and logs is suspended until March.
  • A tarp or mesh container helps to keep loose leaves in place.



Loose Leaf Drop-Off Program

  • This drop-off site is for residents only, no commercial vehicles.
  • Residents must use the designated entrance on Rt. 303.

    separated from leaves and grass.
