EDISON, NJ – Earlier this month, Mayor Thomas Lankey announced the launch of a dynamic new municipal website that’s easy-to-use, regularly updated and more interactive than ever before.

“Our new website can still be accessed at www.edisonnj.org, but that’s where the similarity to its predecessor ends,” Mayor Lankey said. “Our new site is easily navigable and it offers residents and visitors greater access to municipal departments and our first-rate services.”

“Regular essential updates are sure to keep people coming back day-after-day and week-after-week to find out what’s happening in Edison,” Lankey said.

For the first time, the town’s website will be “mobile friendly” thanks to a new Edison “phone app” that is compatible with iPhones, Apple and Android Smart Phone devices, Lankey said.

And, because Edison has emerged as one of New Jersey’s most ethnically and culturally diverse communities, the new website offers a drop-down “language translation’ feature with the touch of a button.

The new website will also enable residents and visitors to:

  • Stay up-to-date about community happenings.
  • Quickly receive emergency notifications by signing up for Nixle.
  • Access 70 applications and forms for a variety of Municipal services.
  • Tune-in to Edison TV for local programming and updates.
  • Sign up for our popular adult and youth Recreation Programs.
  • Learn about Edison’s history and our many historic sites.
  • Read features about the Edison Arts Society, Plays-in-the-Park, the Farmer’s Market and much more.
  • Report neighborhood concerns such as road hazards or maintenance issues in our parks or on our streets.
  • And, conveniently pay their property taxes and sewer bills online.

The new Edison “phone app” provides a full-view of town’s website plus quick links to its “most accessed” pages. All phone numbers on the mobile app are “clickable,” allowing users to dial quickly.

One of the most exciting feature is an easily downloaded “Recycle Coach App” and a website plug-in that puts sanitation, recycling and special waste collection details at people’s fingertips, Lankey explained.

The “Recycle Coach App” gives residents a wide range of information – tailored to their specific neighborhoods – about collection schedules and special events like household hazardous waste and e-waste collections. It also issues alerts if sanitation or recycling schedules are interrupted for emergencies like inclement weather.

The “Recycle Coach” also provides recycling and waste-reduction tips for property owners and tenants, and it enables residents to quickly report municipal problems like missed collections, illegal dumping, overflowing public trash bins, potholes and burned out traffic lights.
