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.

Let’s make America the Greatest Show on Earth Again.

 

I was very sad to learn that after 146 years of big-top entertainment the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is folding its tent and leaving town.

 

This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.

 

It is not really ...
