Dover Hydrant Flushing

The Dover Water Department will begin hydrant flushing September 13, 2022, with an estimated completion date of November 18, 2022.
Flushing will be done during daytime hours, Monday through Saturday. Randolph residents serviced by Dover Water may experience a temporary decrease in water pressure while a main or hydrant is being flushed in a neighborhood, and possible discoloration to tap water afterwards. If your water becomes discolored, turn on an outside faucet to clear the line before doing any laundry or cleaning.
If you have any questions, please call the Dover Water Commission at 973-366-2200 x 2125.
2022 Leaf Collection Program
Posted: September 7, 2022
December 22, 2022: The leaf collection for all districts has been completed for the 2022 season. Residents should not put any more leaves at the curb. If you still have leaves needing to be picked up, please put them in the brown biodegradable bags and call Engineering at 973.989.7066 to arrange for a bagged leaf pick up. The bags will be picked up on the Monday following your request.
The public works department will begin the township’s annual leaf collection program at the end of October. The specific information by district can be found at the bottom of this page.
- Residents, landscapers, contractors and lawn services may place loose leaves at the curb.
- Leaves should be placed only 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; brush, grass, rocks and any other materials should never be included with the leaves.
- Leaves cannot be placed at the curb any earlier than seven days prior to the week of the scheduled collection date.
- Leaves need to be placed at the curb prior to the Saturday in which your district is scheduled to begin pick up.
- Residents are urged to dispose of leaves on their own properties whenever possible since the stormwater regulations instituted by the state make it necessary to reduce the volume of leaves placed at the street.
- Blowing leaves into wooded areas, placing leaves on acid loving plants such as pachysandra, or creating backyard compost piles will minimize costs associated with the collection and trucking of the leaves to a compost facility outside the township limits. Such disposal in wooded areas or on acid loving plants is also beneficial to properties.
- Placing leaves and other yard waste on township parkland and open space is not permitted and is a violation of state regulations.
Violations of any of the above requirements will continue to be enforced by the health department and could result in a court summons being issued.
For residents who prefer to bag leaves instead of waiting for their district’s scheduled collection, the Randolph Township Department of Public Works will collect leaves placed in biodegradable bags on Mondays. To schedule a Monday collection, please call the engineering department at 973.989.7066 by 3:30 p.m. on the prior Friday. This service is offered as a courtesy to residents.
Anticipated Collection Schedule (collections start on Saturdays and occurs throughout the respective WEEK):

HSOR to Host Randolph Reminisces Program
Posted: September 4, 2022
The Historical Society of Old Randolph (HSOR) is pleased to host another “Randolph Reminisces” program on Monday, September 12, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the Randolph Museum. The museum is located at the entrance to Freedom Park off Millbrook Avenue in Randolph.
Our guest speaker will be Mr. Ken Trowbridge. Many years ago, Mr. Trowbridge worked at the Mount Hope Mine, located in Rockaway Township. This mine dates back to the Revolutionary War when rich iron ore was vital to the Continental Army for making weapons. Mining continued at this mine throughout the 1800s and 1900s, and in 1944, modern facilities were erected on the site to accommodate the strong demand for iron during World War II.
Though donations are welcome, this program is free of charge and the public is invited.
Come and explore our museum and learn more about our local history!

Volunteers Needed for Domestic Violence Crisis Response Team
Posted: September 1, 2022
The Randolph Township Police Department and JBWS are seeking volunteers for the Domestic Violence Crisis Response Team (CRT) in our area. The program’s mission is to respond to the needs of victims of domestic violence.
CRT volunteers provide support for victims at the police department by:
- Listening and providing emotional support
- Explaining the dynamics of domestic violence
- Explaining legal options
- Identifying services that can assist the victim
- Discussing a plan to stay safe
The police department believes that CRT volunteers play a significant role in helping to reduce both the incidence and the emotional trauma associated with domestic violence. Our officers support the valuable work performed by the CRT members. Please consider joining our efforts to make the community safer for all.
To learn more about the requirements of the CRT volunteer, please contact JBWS Crisis Response Team Manager Robin Hughes at 973.267.7520, ext. 229.
