Town of Clarkstown

Leaf Program

Leaf Program

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).

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

Loose Leaf Pickup Map Schedule

Check out our new interactive map with easier access to your pickup routes and schedules.

This map is updated daily and provides an easy way for you and your landscaper to find out when Highway crews are anticipated to be in your area, providing enough time to get your bagged and loose leaves to the edge of your property.
