the staff of the Ridgewood bllog

Ridgewood NJ, The storm debris pickup is continuing throughout the Village.  Here are the various ways to dispose of your storm debris:

*Bring it to the Lakeview Recycling Center (at the end of Lakeview Drive) from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday August 15th and Saturday August 22nd.  You will need to show your driver’s license to confirm you are a Ridgewood resident.

*Put out storm debris with your regular yard waste pickup.

*Put storm debris into the planting strip of your property (between the sidewalk and curb) or at the edge of your property, if you do not have sidewalks or curbs.  Our yard waste crews will pick up your storm debris, as time allows.

*Do NOT bag storm debris, unless it is in biodegradable paper bags.

  1. I was going to complain about the town pickup effort but the rest of the towns in Bergen Cty have been slow to collect the debris….

  2. Give them a few weeks.

  3. We need to give the crew’s a break, they’re working very hard it’s backbreaking work.

  4. The “crew” left debris all over my street and literally ripped it up with their plows and front loaders.

    They don’t give a damn and don’t strive to do a quality job

  5. Perhaps you expect your curb line to be steam cleaned and sanitized as well? Suck it up buttercup. They have miles of roadways they have to clean. Your street isn’t special if you realize it or not. The “crews” are essential workers that have been at work serving our community throughout Covid. Perhaps you should show some appreciation.

  6. O well

  7. Why does it seem the first thing many residents find to do is complain? No matter the subject, you hear the complaints. Can’t anyone think first of all the work these men are being required to do? Does anyone have any idea how many trees went down in town? I’m including the private ones which are being cut down with huge logs left on the street. Have you ever lifted an uncut log? It doesn’t matter if it is a snowplow not doing your street in a timely fashion, or potholes (which no one has reported!) not being fixed. If you call, they are almost immediately fixed from my experience. Or some town official or member who doesn’t jump to your command but tries to deal with the town equally. I’m sure most of your parents taught you to count to 10 before speaking or acting. Try it! It might give you a moment to think “is your comment really called for?”
