RANDOLPH, NJ- In response to the damage to trees and shrubs caused by the recent snow/ice storm, efforts have been initiated to remove tree debris from the township roads, rights of way and from residents’ properties hard hit by the storm.
Since the storm hit, township crews have been working to clear all tree debris impacting roadways and sidewalks, as well as picking up branches and limbs from township rights of way. These clean-up efforts will continue throughout the remainder of this month along with the completion of the curbside leaf collection program. Tree limbs and branches should not be mixed with leaf piles. The curbside leaf collection program is in effect until all collection zones have been completed.
Beginning in January, the township will be collecting brush from residents seeking to dispose of any remaining storm debris from their property. Crews from the Randolph Township Public Works Department will collect branches placed curbside along with the annual Christmas tree collection starting on Monday January 6, 2020 and continuing through January, weather permitting. Any debris the township is unable to collect in January due to weather conditions will be picked up during the spring branch collection.
Please ensure that storm-related branches are cut into manageable lengths, no greater than eight feet. The township will not be able to take stumps.
The storm-related branch collection is expected to take several weeks to complete due to the significant volume of damaged trees.
Residents can drop off branches at the recycling center from Wednesday through Sunday during operating hours.
Your cooperation and patience with the clean-up effort is greatly appreciated.
