No Recycling or Garbage Pick up - May 30, 2016
Due to the Holiday on Monday there will be no Garbage or Recycling pick up. Pick up will be on next scheduled day.
Home Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one inch of standing water, which means there are numerous places around a home that might support them. It is important to get rid of these possible breeding sites to avoid a yard full of biting insects.
2016 Grass Cutting & Lawn Maintenance
Ensure external maintenance is done completely or risk warnings and/or summons.
Lawn cutting includes cutting the lawn, weeding, mowing, sweeping of all paved areas (sidewalks, driveways, patios, etc.), and removal of all lawn clippings, related cuttings, and incidental debris (newspapers, flyers, bottles, etc.). Hedges must be trimmed back to not interfere with pedestrian traffic on sidewalks. Lawn clippings must not be swept or blown into the street or curb area. All tree-trimming debris must be tied together and placed at the curb in order for the Roselle Public Works team to remove and dispose of easily on pick up days.
All notifications and/or complaints of Vacant or Abandoned Properties in Roselle can be directed to Code Enforcement Officer, Richard Wolff, 908-634-4509.

Union County Hosts Mobile Shredding Event for the Public - June 4th in Cranford
The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders announces that the next mobile paper-shredding program for personal, confidential documents will visit Cranford on Saturday, June 4, 2016.
The June 4th shredding event will take place at the Union County College campus in Cranford, on Springfield Avenue opposite Nomahegan Park. NEXCUT Shredding of Elizabeth will be shredding personal documents from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine. The event will end before 1 p.m. if the shredding truck reaches capacity.
All Union County residents are eligible to use the paper-shredding service. In an effort to accommodate everyone, there is a limit of four, 10-pound bags or boxes per person. This is a garbage-free event so please bring your documents in paper bags if at all possible. Plastic bags and boxes will be returned. Please remove plastic binders and paperclips. Paper that is wet/damp will not be accepted. Residents should continue to recycle non-confidential papers and magazines with their municipal recycling program.
Documents are put into 96-gallon containers provided by the shredding company. The items are then dumped onto a conveyor belt and shredded on site. Participants are welcome to view the shredding process via a closed-circuit television. The shredded documents are then recycled, shipped to paper mills and used as pulp. The next shredding event will take place on Wednesday, June 8, at the Clark Public Works facility, 315 Westfield Ave. in Clark.
The mobile shredding program is paid for through New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Recycling Enhancement Act Grant Funds. For more information about future events or directions please call the Recycling Hotline at 908-654-9889 or visit us online at www.ucnj.org/recycle.
