SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL
- Do not park cars on the street in anticipation of a snow storm. This speeds the removal process and prevents cars from being plowed in.
- When shoveling snow from driveways, please place snow to the right of the driveway in the direction the snow plow is moving. This will minimize the amount of snow pushed back into the driveway.
- As snow rolls off the plows, it sometimes accumulates in the driveway aprons. Please understand that this unavoidable and it is the homeowner’s responsibility to clean it.
- For your convenience, please do not shovel driveways until plowing operations have been completed.
- Shovel and/or blow snow into the curb, not into the street.
- It is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove snow from the sidewalks.
In the event of deep snow, please shovel around your mailbox and fire hydrant near your house.

Solutions To Stormwater Pollution
A Guide To Healthy Habits For Cleaner Water
Pollution on streets, parking lots, and lawns is washed by rain into storm drains, then directly to our drinking water supplies, and the ocean and lakes that our children play in. Fertilizer, oil, pesticides, detergents, pet waste, grass clippings – you name it, and it ends up in our water.
Stormwater pollution is one of New Jersey’s greatest threats to clean and plentiful water, and that is why we are all doing something about it.
By sharing the responsibility and making small, easy changes in our daily lives, we can keep common pollutants out of stormwater. It all adds up to cleaner water, and it saves the high cost of cleaning up once it is dirty.
As part of New Jersey’s initiative to keep our water clean and plentiful, and to meet federal requirements, many municipalities and other public agencies including colleges and military bases must adopt ordinances or other rules prohibiting various activities that contribute to stormwater pollution. Breaking these rules can result in fines or other penalties.
As a resident, business, or other member of the New Jersey community, it is important to know these easy things that you can do every day to protect our water.
Limit your use of fertilizers and pesticides.
-Do a soil test to see if you need a fertilizer.
-Do not apply fertilizers if heavy rain is predicted.
-Look into alternatives for pesticides.
-Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in a natural state with trees and other native vegetation that requires little or no fertilizer.
Properly use and dispose of hazardous products.
-Hazardous products include some household or commercial cleaning products; lawn and garden care products; motor oil; antifreeze; and paints.
-Do not pour any hazardous products down a storm drain because storm drains are usually connected to local waterbodies and the water is not treated.
-If you have hazardous products in your home or workplace, make sure that you store or dispose of them properly. Read the label for guidance.
-Use natural or less toxic alternatives when possible.
-Recycle used motor oil.
-Contact your municipality, county, or facility management office for the location of hazardous waste disposal facilities.
Keep pollution out of storm drains
-Municipalities and many other public agencies are required to mark certain storm drain inlets with messages reminding people that storm drains are connected to local waterbodies.
-Do not let sewage or other wastes flow into a stormwater system
Clean up after your pet
-Many municipalities and public agencies must enact and enforce local pet waste rules.
-An example is requiring pet owners or their keepers to pick up and properly dispose of pet waste dropped on public or other people’s property.
-Make sure that you know your town’s or agency’s requirements and comply with them. It is the law.
-Remember to use newspaper, bags, or pooper scoopers to pick up pet waste
-Remember to dispose of the wrapped pet waste in the trash or unwrapped in a toilet.
-Remember to never discard pet waste in a storm drain.
Do not feed wildlife
-Do not feed wildlife, such as ducks and geese in public areas.
-Many municipalities and other public agencies must enact and enforce a rule that prohibits wildlife feeding in these areas.
Do not litter
-Place litter in trash receptacles.
-Recycle. Recycle. Recycle.
-Participate in community clean-ups.
Dispose of yard waste properly
-Keep leaves and grass out of storm drains.
-If your municipality or agency has yard waste collection rules, follow them.
-Use leaves and grass clippings as a resource for compost.
-Use a mulching mower that recycles grass clippings into the lawn.
