As a result of the 8/4/20 storm, the Recycling Center is closed until further notice due to a safety issue. An update on the expected re-opening date will be posted later this week.
The DPW will be collecting storm debris from the curb over the next few days. However, the DPW will not collect tree debris generated from a tree service. If you hired a tree service to cut your private tree, the tree company must take it away.
Please put large branches at the curb. Please cut up smaller branches into 4 ft. lengths, bundle, tie and place at curb. Leaves and other small debris, please place into 32 gallon or less containers or place in paper lawn bags and place at your curb.
There is no set collection day - the DPW will be around as soon as they are able to in the next few days.

Paper Shred Day for Bergenfield Residents. Saturday, August 8, 2020 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Parking Lot Behind Borough Hall.
After a successful launch of the “Bergenfield: Back in Business” campaign, the Borough will again temporarily close Washington Avenue to vehicular traffic on Saturday, July 25, to encourage residents to dine out and support local small businesses. The street closure will be in effect from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. between Main Street and Clinton Avenue.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted small businesses and the hospitality industry particularly hard, and now more than ever they need our continued support to stay afloat,” said Mayor Arvin Amatorio. “Temporarily closing Washington Avenue to vehicular traffic is one way our local government can create new opportunities for local restaurants and retailers to expand their outdoor operations. I encourage all residents who have the means to do so to visit their favorite local business this weekend.”
The Borough first temporarily closed Washington Avenue last month, with hundreds of residents attending the launch of the program. Bergenfield also plans to close the same stretch of street on Saturday, August 29.
