Leaf Program

Street Tracker

This site is updated daily and provides an easy way for you to find out when the Highway crews are anticipated to be in your area giving you enough time to get your bagged and loose leaves to the curb. Your landscaper will also benefit from this program because they can check this site and work ahead of the Highway crews.

Please enter your street name below to find your leaf route.

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 October 30 and November 30, 2017.

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

Be sure to have all loose leaves curbside no later than November 30th to ensure that they are picked up before our leaf pick up collection ends. There is no leaf pick up after December 18, as we have to remove leaf pick up equipment from our trucks to prepare for snow removal.
