In accordance with Paramus Borough Ordinance 379-35, the annual leaf pick up in your area has been completed. The last day for putting out loose leaves was November 30th. If a landscaper did the work, you should have them remove the leaves as the borough will no longer pick them up with the leaf machines.

Any remaining leaves must be placed in garbage pails or biodegradable paper bags for curbside pickup on Wednesdays. Please remove the leaves within 48 hours or a summons will be issued in accordance with Paramus Borough Ordinance 379-37.

To All Paramus Residents:

The owner or occupant of every dwelling must maintain, on their premises, adequate covered containers for holding garbage. Containers must be readily accessible for safe collection. Loose dogs, gates, or snow and ice not removed will prevent your items from being picked up that day.


Kitchen garbage must be bagged and placed into covered collection container and placed at curb. Garbage will no longer be removed from any other area of your property.

If a medical or physical condition exists that would prevent you from complying with this change please contact the Paramus DPW Office, 201-265-2100, extension # 658.

Computers, Electronics, and TV's are scheduled collection items

Computer and electronic items will be scheduled for collection at the curb twice (2) a month by calling the DPW Office: 201-265-2100 extensions # 658 or # 659
