Limb Pick-up Program
We have a scheduled day for pickup in each area throughout the City in an effort to cover the entire city over a period of 7-10 days. You may however call the Public Works office to place a work order. Please allow 10 working days for the work order to be completed before calling again. Please pile all limbs on the neutral ground by the street, not in the street. Do not block the sidewalks and ditches. Place the limbs in such a way that there is no overhanging lines or structures to interfere with pick up. The truck crane must have enough clearance to operate. During times of heavy rains the dump will not permit entry of heavy trucks. This means we cannot pick up limbs during those times.
Limb Pick-up Route
As per City Ordinance your piles must contain tree limbs or shrubbery clippings only. No household or construction garbage will be accepted. This includes boards, wires and plastic bags.
As per City Ordinance it is the duty of any landscaper, tree surgeon or tree trimming contractor to immediately remove all debris generated that day.
As per City Ordinance limbs are to be no longer that 4 feet and no more than 75 pounds.
The City operates a street sweeper program for the major thoroughfares in the City. These streets must have curbs and gutters (ex.: Delaware Avenue, Summit Street, Pearl River Avenue and Bendat).
Street Patching & Pot Hole Patrol
Employees of the Street Division are on patrol filling potholes and patching streets throughout the city. Citizens are welcome to call to report potholes and rough areas.
Mosquito Spraying Program
The summer mosquito spraying program is done at the peak of mosquito season during the night when mosquitoes are most active (mosquito are most active during dusk and dawn). Citizens may request larvicide for standing water areas around their neighborhoods.
