On Sunday, September 24th, 2017 (BOONTON DAY!) from 10 AM to 4 PM join the United Railroad Historical Society for a celebration of New Jersey’s railroad history.

Railroad Museum [for a day] is hosted by the United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey, owners of the largest and most historic railroad collection in New Jersey. During this once-a-year event, the URHS Restoration Facility in Boonton, NJ will become New Jersey’s largest railroad museum.

For the sixth consecutive year, the URHS will open the gates of its normally-private Boonton NJ Restor­ation Facility to showcase some of its historic collection. Railroad Museum [for a day] will provide a rare, family-friendly opportunity to admire, explore, and go inside our historic trains and learn about their connection to the region we live in.

Visitors will be able to get up close and personal with vintage railroad equipment and well as visiting classic cars, trucks, buses, and military vehicles. Live music, food concessions, historical & educational presentations, and vendors of railroad-related souvenirs will round out a day that the whole family can enjoy!

West Boonton Yard: 104 Morris Avenue, Boonton, NJ 07005

2017 Leaf Pickup

posted Sep 11, 2017, 3:24 PM by Anthony Pisano

Happy Fall from all of us in your Department of Public Works. Ahead of the heavy leaf pickup season, I have enclosed a copy of our 2017 Leaf Collection Schedule which includes your street name and the two dates when your leaves** will be collected. This schedule may also be found online under the Public Works tab at www.boonton.org.

Chapter 246 Article VI 246-32 E of the Town code (http://www.ecode360.com/BO1912) states that leaves shall be placed in the streets no sooner than seven days prior to a scheduled or announced collection date and shall be placed no closer than 10 ft. from any storm drain. Please have your leaves on the street as close to the Sunday before your collection date as possible to assist us in our work. Failure to follow the schedule will result in a warning letter and in some cases, a summons will be issued. This means that by the ordinance, the earliest you can put your leaves out is the Saturday of your pickup week because there is a chance that your leaves will not be picked up until Friday, which is a full seven days.

Also listed in the enclosed schedule are the instructions to help guide you. We plan on making two) passes through town (weather permitting), so your street should appear on the schedule twice. Please do the following:

1. Find your street on the enclosed schedule
2. Mark your calendar for your 2 street collection dates
3. Place your leaves on the street on the weekend nearest your collection date

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not wait until Monday to put your leaves into the street as there is no guarantee that we will be on any particular street on any particular day.

WHAT IF IT SNOWS in the days prior to your collection date? Please visit the Town website at www.boonton.org for further instructions.

WHAT IF YOU MISS YOUR COLLECTION DATE OR DON’T WANT TO WAIT? You can bring your leaves to the Town’s Recycling Center located on Plane Street. Throughout the leaf collection season, the Recycling Center will be open to accepting leaves:

Monday – Friday 8am-11:45am & 12:45pm-3pm
Saturday 8am-12noon
Veteran’s Day & the Friday 9am-1pm
after Thanksgiving

If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at (973) 402-9460

Sincerely yours,

Michael P. Petonak
Superintendent of Public Works

**PLEASE REMEMBER: LEAVES ONLY!! NO STICKS, BRANCHES, ROCKS OR GARDEN PLANTS ARE PERMITTED!!**
