Information and Reminders from West Orange Township

WEST ORANGE, NJ -  Here are some important information and reminders from West Orange Township:

New email available for snow removal requests

West Orange township has set up a new Email to report unplowed roads.  Despite the Department of Public Works ongoing efforts during this difficult winter to plow the township's more than 100 miles of roads, it still takes time to get the job done.  If your road has not been plowed or needs to be plowed again, residents are asked to wait for two hours after the conclusion of the snow or ice storm.  At that time, send an email to snow@westorange.org with your complete road name and it will be passed along directly to the Dept. of Public Works. You can also call The Snow Hotline: 973-325-SNOW (7669).

No plastic bags allowed in single stream recycling

Good Egg Hunting

Being a good egg an old fashioned, aw-shucks kind of way of saying someone is a kind-hearted person.  Maybe even honorable or generous.  At the very least, still within a likeable sell-by ...
