Montclair, NJ -- In an effort to reduce litter scattered throughout the Township by high winds, beginning April 1, the Montclair Department of Community Services (DCS) will initiate a two-level high winds declaration system for delaying or canceling refuse/recycling collection when local forecasts call for high wind speeds or sustained wind gusts. A high winds advisory will require that residents refrain from putting trash and recycling to the curb until 6:00 a.m. on the morning of collection. DCS will begin pick-up service at 7:30 a.m. to give residents sufficient time in the morning to bring their refuse/recycling out to the curb. A severe winds advisory will cancel refuse/recycling collection and containers are not to be placed at the curb. High/severe winds declaration notices will go out via the METS alert system, they will be posted on the township website, Facebook page, TV34 crawl and tweeted. In addition, Remyndr, Montclair’s collection notification app, will send an alert to subscribers to let them know they need to delay bringing refuse/recycling to the curb or that next day collection service will be canceled. The Township continues its efforts to keep our neighborhoods litter-free and the new high/severe winds declaration measure will help reduce the amount of garbage and recyclable materials strewn on roadways, sidewalks and lawns.
