2018 Leaf Collection Program
Posted: October 5, 2018
Leaf Collection Update—December 14, 2018 The DPW has been able to catch up on leaf collection. They anticipate completing District 3 later today. They are in the home stretch of the collection, so please put your leaves out. District 4 will begin on Monday, December 17, 2018.
Leaf Collection and Placement of Leaves The engineering department has received complaints about residents/landscapers putting leaves at the curb earlier than 7 days prior to the scheduled pick-up dates. It is important that all residents/landscapers comply with these guidelines as the NJDEP has strict stormwater regulations regarding leaves getting into township catch basins. A notice will be put in the mailbox of any resident who does not adhere to these requirements. If the notice goes unaddressed, the health department will be notified and a summons may be issued to the resident.
The public works department will begin the township’s annual leaf collection program at the end of October. The anticipated collection schedule has been pushed back one week.
Residents are urged to dispose of leaves on their own properties whenever possible. Blowing leaves into wooded areas, placing leaves on acid loving plants such as pachysandra, or creating backyard compost piles will have the effect of minimizing costs associated with the curbside collection of leaves.
Residents, landscapers, contractors and lawn services may place loose leaves at the curb (not in the road or gutter) no earlier than seven days prior to their scheduled collection date. Leaves need to be placed curb side prior to the Saturday in which your district is scheduled for pickup.
The township will be enforcing its yard waste ordinance with written warnings and summonses. Residents using private contractors are reminded that they must inform their contractors of the regulatory elements of the township’s curbside leaf collection policy.
Loose leaves must be placed at the curb, not in the road or gutter.
The placement of the leaves should not take place any earlier than seven days prior to the resident’s scheduled collection date.
Leaves should only be placed in locations on the property ten or more feet from any storm sewer inlet on the street.
Only leaves should be placed at the curb. To avoid damage to the leaf collection equipment, brush, grass, rocks and any other materials should never be included with the leaves.
Please try to coordinate your yard raking with the schedule which follows to avoid having leaves in the gutter for extended periods of time.
Anticipated Collection Schedule:
South of Pleasant Hill Rd., Calais Rd. & Sussex Tpke., Sussex Tpke. to Morris Twp. border When: Weeks of 10/27 and 11/24
North of Route 10 When: Weeks of 11/3 and 12/1
North of Pleasant Hill Rd. & Calais Rd., south of Route 10 and west of Millbrook Ave. When: Weeks of 11/10 and 12/8
East of Millbrook Ave., south of Route 10 and north of Sussex Turnpike When: Weeks of 11/17 and 12/21

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Posted: October 3, 2018
The Township of Randolph, in conjunction with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, will be participating in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Residents can anonymously and confidentially drop off unwanted or expired prescription medications, controlled substances and over the counter medications in front of the ACME at 690 Millbrook Avenue (on the corner of Sussex Turnpike). Doing so eliminates drugs that can fall into the wrong hands.
The cost of the 2-hour tour, which includes admission to the Randolph Museum, is $5.00 for adults and free for children under 12 years of age.
Meet at the Randolph Township municipal building, located on Millbrook Avenue. Bus seating is limited and admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis so be sure to arrive early. There is an 8-person minimum for the tour to take place.
The public is invited to attend this free program on Monday, October 15, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Randolph Museum. The museum is located in the historic Brundage House at the main entrance to Randolph’s Freedom Park on Millbrook Avenue. Light refreshments will be served. These events are usually well-attended, so come a bit early to obtain seating. No admission fee is charged, though donations are accepted.
Mr. Holden, noted aviation historian and author, was so well-received by Randolph residents in his previous visit that he has kindly agreed to return and continue to share his vast knowledge.
