SUMMIT, NJ - In anticipation of predicted significant snowfall, the City's recycling operation for February 9 has been suspended. And, should the current forecast hold, the collection of household garbage will also be suspended.
According to accuweather.com, an area of 6 to 12 inches of snowfall is likely from parts of eastern Pennsylvania through northern New Jersey, southeastern New York state and coastal Maine.
Recycling will be picked up on Saturday, February 11 for all Summit residents, who are asked to have their recyclables at the curb by 6 a.m. on Saturday morning.
Should weather cause its postponement, trash will be collected Saturday, February 11, conditions permitting. For those whose normal trash collection day of the week is Friday, trash collection is expected to proceed February 10 as scheduled. A path must be cleared to outdoor trash receptacles, or the garbage will not be able to be collected.
Overnight on-street parking and parking in the DeForest Avenue park and shop lots will be restricted during the storm and during clean-up operations. Vehicles can be parked in the Broad Street and Springfield Avenue Tier garages during the storm, but must be removed by 8 a.m. on February 10 to accommodate employee and commuter parking.
Residents are advised to remain at home and avoid driving if possible, to allow crews the opportunity to clear the roads.
