GLEN ROCK, N.J. -- Glen Rock's Department of Public Works is launching a pilot spring cleanup program, picking up "vegetative waste" from the curb once for each side of town.
Monday, April 18, is the pickup date for the north and west section of town. It's Monday, April 25, for the south and east section of town.
Acceptable items include leaves, branches no bigger than four inches diameter, grass and flowers. Branches should be shorter than four feet long and must be tied together. Put loose items in trash containers or biodegradable bags.
Items that are not included are dirt, rocks, concrete, logs, plastic bags and plastic plant pots, and no item should exceed 40 pounds.
The Borough also recently reminded residents, "As the weather warms up and we are able to enjoy the outdoors in Glen Rock, please be mindful of proper disposal of trash." There are trash and recycling receptacles throughout town, for both residents' and visitors' convenience.
Additionally, when putting out recycling, bulk pickup and cardboard, secure all items. And finally, don't put out items before the evening before pickup.
Call the Department of Public Works at 201-670-3980 with any questions.
