Christmas Tree Collection in January 2018
Posted: December 27, 2017
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 8, 2018.
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.
Pre-Payment of 2018 Property Taxes
Posted: December 22, 2017
In light of the sweeping tax overhaul approved by the U.S. Congress earlier this week, the township has received multiple inquiries as to whether property owners would be permitted to pre-pay their 2018 estimated taxes on or before the end of 2017.
The township is able to accept a pre-payment of the first and second quarters of a property owner’s 2018 estimated property taxes. All payments must physically be in the tax office on or before close of business on Friday, December 29, 2017.
If you have a mortgage company that escrows and pays on your behalf, you must consult with them to prevent the duplication of payment(s). Please note that the township cannot provide tax advice and we encourage property owners to consult with their licensed tax professionals as whether a pre-payment of taxes is advisable or not.
Dog/Cat License Renewals Due Soon
Posted: December 16, 2017
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.
