From: Paul Lasek---TOWNSHIP ENGINEER--
I just received a call from Future Sanitation. They will work into the evening in an attempt to catch up on the garbage pick-up. If after working today, they remain behind, they will continue to pick up garbage tomorrow for today’s pick-up and tomorrow’s (Thursday’s). They believe that they will be caught up and back to regular pick-up by Friday.
Resident’s should be informed that any garbage left on the curbside from today’s pick-up (Wednesday) should be left at the curb for pick-up sometime tomorrow.
Future Sanitation is working under adverse conditions. The Essex County incinerator is shut down until at least Monday November 12th. Future is using alternate sites which, due to the Essex County closure, are experiencing long lines for tipping. This, in addition to the weather and larger volumes of trash, is resulting in the pick-up delays.
We must all be patient.
