October in HP brings crisp days, cold nights, colorful trees, and falling leaves! The forecast is for a hard frost this weekend, so there will be a lot of leaves falling down in the next two weeks. Please rake the leaves to the edge of your property and be careful not to block a storm drain or the roadway.
Please do NOT include sticks and vegetation in the leaf piles. Grass and plants cannot be easily vacuumed up and sticks can (and do) block the vacuum, putting our DPW workers in danger. Put these items in barrels for Monday vegetative waste pickup.
There are four more vegetative waste pickup dates this year: Oct 17, Oct 24, Nov 2 & Nov 9 Garbage pickup continues on Wednesdays and Saturdays through October 31st, then will be on Wednesdays only until March 31st. Single Stream curbside recycling is on the first four Thursdays of each month through out the year (exceprt Friday November 27th, 2015)
Please call the Municipal Clerk’s office at 201-768-1700 or look at the town website http://www.HARRINGTONPARKNJ.gov for more information about recycling, garbage, vegetative waste, branches, metal items and furniture/appliance disposal.
