Ridgewood NJ, Village Manager Heather Mailander  issued a special update on a special pickup for tree limbs and branches . The Parks and Street Departments have finished Area A, Area B, and Area C for the special pickup for the tree limbs/branches.  The pickup in Area D has begun and will continue until all of the streets in Area D have been picked up.  If you live in Area D, please have all of your tree limbs/branches at the curbline (not blocking your sidewalks) by this date.   Please do not place yardwaste at the curb during this pickup, because it will not be picked up.  Yardwaste collection begins on April 16th.  Please check the Village website, under My Village Services, to determine your yardwaste collection day.

As a reminder, the crews will remove the limbs and branches from every street in each section only once and after this pickup has taken place, there will be no additional pickups for these tree limbs and branches.

Early bird discounted registration for Graydon Pool will take place April 1st through April 30th
.  Please click on the picture of Graydon Pool at the top of the Village website to register at discounted prices.
