SUMMIT, NJ  - The Department of Community Services is offering curbside pickup of leaves and large items such as appliances now through December 4 and 18, respectively.

The Division of Public Works will collect bagged leaves will be collected curbside -- on regularly scheduled garbage pickup days -- through December 4, or the first major snowfall.
 
Leaves must be placed in biodegradable brown bags and placed at the curb. Residents may also bring leaves to the Transfer Station, located at 40 New Providence Rd. The collected leaves are then composted and the compost is made available to the public in the spring for use on lawns and in gardens.
 
 
Residents are asked to refrain from piling leaves in streets, as prohibited by a city ordinance. Though the Division of Public Works operates street sweepers and leaf vacuums to clear streets of leaves and other natural debris, piling leaves in the street is a driving hazard. Doing so narrows driving lanes and creates traffic problems, especially during wet weather when leaves become slippery.
 
Pumpkin Launch
 
For the next few weeks, pumpkins are also being composted at the Transfer Station with a “catapult your pumpkin” launch on November 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..
 
Bulk Item Pickup

The City is also providing scheduled pick up of bulky items, such as furniture and appliances on December 4 and 18. Please contact the Department of Community Services at 908-273-6404 to arrange a pickup for those scheduled dates.
 
Transfer Station Schedule

The Transfer Station will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, reopening with regular operating hours on November 27 and 28. The Transfer Station will also be closed on Christmas Day, reopening December 26 with regular operating hours.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

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 ...
