Important Message: Information About Your Drinking Water

Our water system is no longer in violation of drinking water standards.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. On June 14, 2022, we recieved notice that the sample collected on November 17, 2021 showed our system exceeded the standard, or maximum contaminant level for 1,2,3-Tri-chloropropane (TCP).

After following all State guidelines, the Borough water system has satisfied all requirements of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and all follow-up sampled have showed undetectable readings for 1,2,3-TCP.


Brush, Grass, Leaves & Hedge Clippings Collection

Leaf Collection – Leaves are collected in fall and spring. Fall leaf collection begins in October and continues to mid December. Spring leaf collection begins in April, continuing to the end of May. Pick up days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday depending on your location in town. Place leaves in biodegradable bags only! Only clean leaves are to be placed in bags.

Large branches and limbs, up to 15 feet and 4 inches in diameter are collected and chipped. Put large limbs at the curb facing the same direction with the cut end at the curb.

Hedge Clippings – hedge clippings are small trimmings from shrubs and hedges. They are collected the first Tuesday during the months of July and August. Place trimmings at the curb on the evening prior to collection in a rigid container with a lid such as a trash can and limit the weight of the container to 50 pounds.
