Winter Weather Advisories
At this time, some weather services are forecasting snowfall requiring snow management activities for Wednesday, 11/26/14, beginning in the morning:
With respect to leaf collection:
- Trucks are being converted from leaf collection to snow management.
- Leaf collection will be suspended as of close of business Tuesday, 11/25/14.
- Trucks may continue in winter configuration through Tuesday, 12/2/14.
- If the improved forecast for Wednesday, 12/3/14, holds, leaf collection may resume at that time.
Please check this website for updates on leaf collection.
With respect to trash and recycling pickup:
-Depending upon the timing of the storm and rate of snowfall, trash and recycling pickup scheduled for Wednesday, November 26, 2014, could be delayed until Friday, November 28.
- Residents having regular trash pickup on Thursdays should put their trash out for pick-up on Saturday, November 29, as published in the trash/refuse schedule.
- In order to not impede snow plowing, please keep all bags and trash and recycling cans out of the street and right-of-way. Please note that white trash bags may not be seen in the snow.
Because of Thanksgiving, large trash volumes are expected. A winter storm at the same time will compound issues related to trash hauling. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
Please be advised, plows will be making multiple passes for the duration of the storm. Depositing snow in the street is a violation of Township Ordinance. It also makes it harder for streets to be cleared.
If your property is adjacent to a fire hydrant, please assist the Fire Department by clearing the snow around the hydrant.
