Christmas Tree Collection in January 2017

Posted: December 26, 2016

The Randolph Township Public Works Department will be picking up residents’ used Christmas trees this holiday season.

The trees must be bare, with no stands, ornaments, lights, tinsel, etc. Place at curb without plastic bags. The collected trees will be chipped and the chips will be available for use in next year’s gardens.

Christmas trees must be put out at the curb NO LATER THAN January 9, 2017.

Trees put out later than this date WILL NOT be picked up by the township. However, Christmas trees will be accepted anytime during normal working hours at the recycling center on Sussex Turnpike.

Dog/Cat License Renewals Due Soon

Posted: December 26, 2016

The Randolph Township Health Department would like to remind residents that all dogs and cats must be licensed by 7 months of age and have a current tag affixed to a collar or harness.

Licenses are good for one year and must be renewed by January 31 of each year for dogs and by February 28 of each year for cats.

License applications are automatically mailed in December to all registered pet owners. For your convenience, we have also made these applications available for download from our Dog/Cat Licenses page.

As mandated under state law, a condition of licensure requires that each dog or cat has a current rabies vaccination. Please note that our free rabies immunization voucher program, as explained on the Dog/Cat Licenses page, has a defined time period for redemption—it is available between January 1 and February 28.

Have questions or need more info? Contact the health department at 973.989.7050.

Big Change to Curbside Collection of Recycling as of January 2017

Posted: December 16, 2016

Beginning January 2017, the curbside collection of both garbage and recyclables will take place on the same day of the week, except recycling will be picked up on the 2nd and 4th week of the month. Residents will now place their recycling alongside their garbage twice per month.

There are four collection routes in the township and each route has a specific day of the week when garbage and recycling are collected. Garbage is collected every week; recycling is collected twice per month, during the 2nd and 4th week of each month. Therefore, twice per month, on the 2nd and 4th week, residents will be placing their recycling alongside their garbage. A resident must know their route number in order to ascertain what day of the week these collections will occur.

As a result, the route number and recycling collection day will change for many residents as of January 2017. We urge all residents to check to determine their new route number and collection day.

If you have any questions, please call the Randolph Township Department of Health at 973.989.7050.

Big Kids at the Playhouse

Posted: December 15, 2016

Big Kids is a new developmental musical play written by Drew University seniors Shafer Ward and Philipe Abiyouness.

The play centers around the Randall family comprised of Stan, a local comedian and stay-at-home dad, Melanie, a project manager at Gate Farm Insurance, and Morgan and Jake, who are elementary schools students. The family dynamic is disturbed when each of the parents find themselves less and less able to be at home. As the parents begin to skirt their responsibilities and act like children, we see the children assume more responsibility over themselves and take on the role of adults. In our fun and playful world of the play, kids play adults and adults play kids as we flip the tables on presenting the family in this fun little musical dramedy.

Performances will be at the playhouse on January 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. and January 22 and 29 at 2:00 p.m.

All tickets are $10.00 and can now be purchased online through Randolph’s Community Pass system.
