Information and Reminders from West Orange Township

February 10, 2014 at 9:20 PM

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
 
While the township's new single-stream recycling has been a huge hit, there have been issues with residents placing their recycling in plastic bags in the containers for pickups.  The bags interfere with the sorting mechanism on the trucks, and residents are asked to NOT place recycling in plastic bags.

Mayor Robert Parisi will hold his bi-monthly office hours on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  No appointment is necessary and all residents are welcome.

Pokémon Politics Go!

As a rule I stay away from popular fads.  Politics included.

 

I find my views on the latest crazy trends that are sweeping the nation are usually wrong and completely out of touch with reality.  

 

For example, for years I have been predicting the imminent demise of cell phones and the internet.

 

Which is why it seems only appropriate that I expound on ...

Burial at Sea

As I plugged my phone into the outlet next to a shelf in the hotel bathroom, I had a fleeting thought that it was sort of an odd place for an outlet.  That was actually the last thought I had before my phone slipped out of my hands and fell directly below the shelf…

Into the toilet.

The good news was, the water in the toilet was clean.

The bad news was, it was still water.
