Information and Reminders from West Orange Township

By CYNTHIA CUMMING

February 10, 2014 at 9:20 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ -  Here are some important information and reminders from West Orange Township:

New email available for snow removal requests

West Orange township has set up a new Email to report unplowed roads.  Despite the Department of Public Works ongoing efforts during this difficult winter to plow the township's more than 100 miles of roads, it still takes time to get the job done.  If your road has not been plowed or needs to be plowed again, residents are asked to wait for two hours after the conclusion of the snow or ice storm.  At that time, send an email to snow@westorange.org with your complete road name and it will be passed along directly to the Dept. of Public Works. You can also call The Snow Hotline: 973-325-SNOW (7669).

Sign up for the ROBO Emergency Alert System

To receive phone, email, and/or text ergency alerts, residents can sign up or manage ther existing profiles at www.westorange.org/codered.
 
Monthly Facebook chats with township officials
 
Remember to 'tune in' on the http://facebook.com/westorangeinfo page to join the conversation with West Orange Department directors.  Residents are encouraged to ask questions and make suggestions.  
 
On Feb. 19, Department of Health Officer Theresa De Nova will be online from 1 to 2 p.m.

To participate, residents can post  a question to the Town Facebook page in advance, or log on to the Town Facebook page at 1 p.m. on Feb. 19. You will be able to post your question as a comment to our post.
 
No plastic bags allowed in single stream recycling
 
While the township's new single-stream recycling has been a huge hit, there have been issues with residents placing their recycling in plastic bags in the containers for pickups.  The bags interfere with the sorting mechanism on the trucks, and residents are asked to NOT place recycling in plastic bags.
 
Mayor Parisi's open office hours
 
Mayor Robert Parisi will hold his bi-monthly office hours on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  No appointment is necessary and all residents are welcome.
