Did You Know:

The County has over 100 county snow plows, salt trucks, and other vehicles available for deployment. They vary in size and scope of work as some are for removal in our parks while others handle major county roads.

We have roughly 100 workers on call for snow events. Depending on the nature of the storm, workers are anticipated to operate on 12-hour shifts. The County runs the entire operation internally with employees from DPW, Parks, and Public Safety.

The County performs snow removal for 7 towns that we contract with as well as all County assets (parks and facilities). Those towns include Carlstadt, Lodi, Hackensack, Wyckoff, Franklin Lakes, Mahwah, and Skyline Drive in Oakland. The County plows Fort Lee and Cliffside Park, while local DPW’s salt. For municipalities the County does not plow, County DPW provides salt to municipalities to salt and brine county roads.
