Final Leaf Collection Program: Starting Monday, DPW will begin to finalize the leaf collection program. Saturday, December 13th is the deadline to put out leaves. Make sure to pile your leaves in preparation for the final pick-up. If you use a landscaping company, please coordinate accordingly. After DPW has picked-up leaves in your neighborhood, residents will no longer be able to dump leaves in the street. Once areas are cleaned, DPW will not return to pick-up again. Please make sure to sign up for Nixle and check our website for updates and leaf collection schedules for specific areas.

Neighborhoodscout recently ranked Bergenfield, New Jersey, as the 2nd safest in the nation on their list of the 100 safest cities in America with 25,000 or more people.
Neighborhoodscout based their rankings on the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Data used for this research consisted of 1) the number of total crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city, and 2) the population of each city.
