Warren Township issued a statement noting the township's program to pick up debris from October's Hurricane Sandy has ended. Here is the statement released:
"Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy that invaded New Jersey on Oct. 28, the Township Committee authorized the Department of Public Works to collect debris and brush from all Warren Township residents.
"The collection process began on Nov. 13. Residents were advised they must adhere to specific instructions before Public Works would clean up debris from the storm. Residents were also advised that if debris and/or brush did not meet those criteria, debris would not be picked up. In addition, the debris was to be picked up one time only and Public Works would not revisit a street once already there.
"The Public Works Department completed the cleanup program on Jan 15. For those residents who continue to place debris at the curb, please be advised that the township will not pick up debris currently in the Right of Way; it is the responsibility of the property owner to have the debris removed.
"Due to the major undertaking this project entailed, the Township Committee recognizes and appreciates the Department of Public Works for their hard work, patience, and organization in performing this major storm cleanup.
"The Township Committee thanks the residents for its full cooperation in making this program a huge success."
