HOBOKEN, NJ — The City has announced that it will soon resume street cleaning, which has been suspended due to COVID-19 lockdown concerns.
In his statement Friday night, Mayor Bhalla said, "Keeping Hoboken safe and healthy also means ensuring our streets are clean, which is understandably not the case on certain streets since street sweeping has been suspended for several weeks."
Hoboken's street sweeping will resume on Monday, May 18. Residents are advised to plan accordingly and move their vehicles to avoid ticketing.
"We are also seeing more personal protective equipment (PPE) on streets," said Bhalla, "which is all the more reason that our Department of Environmental Services believes street sweeping should resume."
The Mayor adds, "I recognize that this is an inconvenience, but keeping our streets clean is an important factor in keeping our residents safe during COVID-19."
