City News Briefs: Police Ask Residents to Take Safety Survey; Next Open Dial-A-Truck Date is Sept. 15

The next available Dial-A-Truck Pickup date is September 15.

SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Police Department has partnered with TransOptions, a non-profit transportation group serving northern New Jersey, to conduct an online community safety survey among residents to inform future pedestrian safety initiatives and make roadway improvements.

TransOptions is offering an incentive for citizens to complete the survey -- which is available in both English and Spanish languages -- as all respondents will be entered into a raffle for a $100 Visa Gift Card.
Next Dial-A-Truck Date is September 15
The next available Dial-A-Truck pick up is scheduled for September 15, with the August 25 pickup now closed and only changes to previously scheduled pick-ups on that date allowed.
To schedule a pick-up on September 15, call the Department of Community Services at 908-273-6404. Spots are limited.
The Dial-A-Truck program is an appointment-only service designed to assist the residents of Summit with the disposal of large, heavy bulky items at no cost.

Accepted Items
Items must be too large to fit into a passenger vehicle. Only those items on the list will be picked up; the list is limited to five items. Construction debris from renovation projects and business trash are not permitted for collection.

Collection Restrictions
There are specific collection restrictions such as construction materials, hazardous materials, propane tanks, etc.; residents with questions or concerns about acceptable products, are directed to contact the Department of Community Services. 

Items for Dial-a-Truck collection must be placed out at curbside, but no earlier than the evening prior to the scheduled pickup. Landlords and businesses are not eligible to utilize this service. Any non-bulky items or general trash may be disposed of at the City of Summit Transfer Station. Tenants vacating apartments must not leave items at curbside prior to leaving.

Residents are further reminded that leaving unauthorized items at the curb is a violation of the City of Summit Property Maintenance Code and will result in a summons and fine.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
