Blasting Operations to Take Place

Posted: December 26, 2019

On or about Friday, December 27, 2019 blasting operations will start for Randolph Township Public School’s new field house/wellness center. The blasting zone will be located a safe distance between the Randolph Middle School and Randolph High School on the site of the old field house.

ALL BLASTING OPERATIONS WILL BE DONE IN STRICT ACCORDANCE WITH ALL LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL LAWS AND SAFETY REGULATIONS.

Blasting operations will operate Monday through Saturday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and may continue through March 2020.

Posted: December 26, 2019

In response to tree/shrub damage caused by recent snow/ice storms, crews from the Randolph Township Public Works Department will collect branches placed curbside along with the annual Christmas tree collection and continuing through January, weather permitting. Any debris the township is unable to collect in January due to weather conditions will be picked up during the spring branch collection. More about storm-related branch collection »

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 6, 2020.

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.


Upcoming Storm

Posted: December 16, 2019

A message from Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L):

JCP&L meteorologists are closely monitoring the developing weather conditions. JCP&L is prepared to activate its storm response and Incident Command System plans.

In the event outages occur due to severe weather, customers without power are encouraged to report their outage by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877), clicking the “Report Outage” link at the JCP&L website, or by texting out to 544487.

Customers should immediately report downed wires to 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or call their local police department. JCP&L reminds customers to stay away from downed wires, even if they believe they are no longer carrying electricity. Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled with trees or other debris. Motorists are cautioned to treat intersections with inoperable traffic signals as four-way stops.

JCP&L customers can subscribe to email and text message alert notifications to receive weather updates in advance of major storms and updates on scheduled or extended power outages. Visit the JCP&L website to enroll. Follow JCP&L on Twitter @JCP_L, on Facebook or online.


Storm-Related Branch Collection

Posted: December 11, 2019

In response to the damage to trees and shrubs caused by the recent snow/ice storm, efforts have been initiated to remove tree debris from the township roads, rights of way and from residents’ properties hard hit by the storm.

Since the storm hit, township crews have been working to clear all tree debris impacting roadways and sidewalks, as well as picking up branches and limbs from township rights of way. These clean-up efforts will continue throughout the remainder of this month along with the completion of the curbside leaf collection program. Tree limbs and branches should not be mixed with leaf piles. The curbside leaf collection program is in effect until all collection zones have been completed.

Beginning in January, the township will be collecting brush from residents seeking to dispose of any remaining storm debris from their property. Crews from the Randolph Township Public Works Department will collect branches placed curbside along with the annual Christmas tree collection starting on Monday January 6, 2020 and continuing through January, weather permitting. Any debris the township is unable to collect in January due to weather conditions will be picked up during the spring branch collection.

Please ensure that storm-related branches are cut into manageable lengths, no greater than eight feet. The township will not be able to take stumps.

The storm-related branch collection is expected to take several weeks to complete due to the significant volume of damaged trees.

Residents can drop off branches at the recycling center from Wednesday through Sunday during operating hours.

Your cooperation and patience with the clean-up effort is greatly appreciated.

JCP&L is reporting numerous outages in Randolph from the winter storm which hit the area over the past few days. Crews have been in town all day assessing and/or repairing damaged lines and poles and will be continuing their work into this evening. Residents’ best source for information related to outages is the JCP&L website; the township does not have more information than what JCP&L posts. If your power is out and you have not yet reported it, call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877), or click the “Report Outage” link at the JCP&L website.

Due to the power outages, the township has established warming/charging stations:

  • The Randolph library will be open until 9:00 p.m.
  • The Randolph YMCA will be open until 10:00 p.m.

The town does not open shelters overnight as we do not have the required resources to meet the health and security requirements for a 24-hour shelter.

Individuals with specific health needs may contact OEM Coordinator, Bill Wagner, at 973.214.7629 for assistance.

JCP&L is offering free water & ice to customers remaining out of service. Customers can pick up water and ice locally at the following locations:
