Leaf and Grass Pickup
The Morris County MUA has requested that the Borough no longer pick up bags of co-mingled leaves and grass. When bagging your yard waste please separate leaves and grass into different bags. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Every Spring & Fall the Borough flushes the hydrants. The date this will be done will be printed in the newspaper. You may experience a discoloration of your water after the flushing is done. To avoid any problems let your water run a few minutes before using.
Sewer back-ups are usually a result of grease build up in the sewer lines. To avoid this problem, please do not pour grease, oil or other foreign items down the drain or in the toilet. Discard in a container and dispose of in your regular garbage. A charge will be imposed on anyone found to be pouring grease or oil into the sewer system.
The Department of Public Works can now accept electronic waste. There are two options to dispose of your electronic waste. The first option is you can purchase a $10 sticker at Town Hall and place the item out on every other Thursday. 2015 dates are published in your 2015 town calendar. The second option is you can drop your electronic waste at the DPW building on the same dates from 12-2:30 for free.
Acceptable E-Waste Items Include: Cables, Cable Boxes, Cellular Phones, Computers, Copiers, Cords, CRT Monitors, DVD Players, External Drives (all Types), Fax/Scanners, Keyboards, Laptops, LCD Monitors, Mouse, MP3/IPods/etc., Networking Equipment, PDA's, Printers, Projectors, Satellite Dishes, Servers, Stereos, TV's, Typewriters, UPS Units (Uninterrupted Power Supplies), VCR's, Video Game Systems
