ORDINANCE 202-13 PARKING PROHIBITED DURING CERTAIN HOURS

This Ordinance states: "No person shall park a vehicle upon any Borough street between the hours of 2:00am and 6:00am prevailing local time, and/or during snow removal time." Residents who violate this Ordinance are subject to the fines and penalties according to the Code of the Borough of Franklin Park.

For the safety and convenience of our residents, we ask all motorists to strictly comply with the requirements of Ordinance 202-13.

LEAF BAG PICK-UP

The Borough will only collect leaves in biodegradable paper bags. Please refrain from putting rocks, sticks, plastic bottles, etc. in the bags. These items will contaminate the mulch. Do not close leaf bags with duct tape. Duct tape is not biodegradable and must not be used. Please leave enough room at the top of the bag so you can either fold or roll it closed.

Leaf bags are paper bio-degradable bags and can be purchased at the municipal building (.40 each) or at any store. Bags should be taken to the curb for pick-up. The leaf mulch will be available at Blueberry Hill Park in the Spring.

FALL Collection Dates: Mondays - October 31/November 7,14 & 21, 28, 2016
(All bags must be placed at the curb by 6:00AM on Monday morning of each week)
Leaf pick up could take several days to cover the entire Borough.

BRUSH CHIPPING

All brush (1/2" to 4" in diameter only) must be placed at the curb. Our Public Works Department provides brush-chipping service twice a year.

Fall Collection Begins: Monday, November 7, 2016
(All brush must be placed at the curb by 7:00AM)


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING BRUSH CHIPPING PLEASE READ:

Collection will begin on the date listed above. The chipper will pass through the Borough one time. If your brush is not out at the curb when the chipper passes, you have two options:
1.) Take your branches to the mulch pile on Blaine's Way in Blueberry Hill Park. The Borough will then mulch the branches. YOU MUST HAVE A PERMIT FROM BOROUGH OFFICE
2.) Wait until the next collection date
The chipping service may take several weeks to get to all areas of the Borough depending on the amount of brush placed at the curb. Although we cannot provide specific dates, they will get to your area as soon as possible. It is imperative that residents have your brush at the curb on the first Monday of the chipping season! Please cut and place your brush perpendicular to the curb with the butt end out.

This service is provided for brush and tree trimmings only. Bushes or trees with thorns will not be accepted. If you have a tree or trees to dispose of, you must contact a private contractor. Borough crews will not spend more than 15 minutes chipping brush at your home. Please cut and place your brush accordingly.

The location of wood chips and leaf compost is located at the south end of Blaine's Way in Blueberry Hill Park, near McDevitt Road. The same rules will apply: Chips and compost are free to Borough residents only.

CHRISTMAS TREE PICK-UP

Christmas trees should be placed at the curb on Mondays, January 9, 2016 and
January 16, 2016 by 6:00AM.
It can take a full week to collect the trees. DO NOT leave plastic or any decorations on the tree.

If you miss the curbside collection, trees can be taken to the Yard Waste Drop Off Site, at Blueberry Hill Park, and placed in the designated area. (look for appropriate signage). No permit is required to place Christmas trees at the site.

THE STORM IS OVER...NOW LET'S WORK TOGETHER

The Franklin Park Borough Public Works Department has the responsibility of clearing municipal streets of snow and ice from winter storms. Our aim is to provide residents with the highest possible level of service therefore providing a safe environment for vehicular and emergency traffic. We take this responsibility very seriously!

The Borough's snow removal priorities are: heavy or arterial roadways, followed by school bus routes, neighborhood roads and finally cul-de-sacs.

During snowfalls the initial pass of the snow plow is to open the road to traffic flow. Expect to have the snow pushed back to the curb on a later pass. This is done to provide more space to push away further snow and to provide drainage when the snow melts, so that water runs along the side of the road and not in the cart way where it may refreeze as temperatures drop. Remember that snow plows cannot pick up and carry snow, so snow is placed to create the least amount of problems for motorists.

REMINDERS:

  • Ordinance No. 202-13 prohibits parking of vehicles on Borough roads during periods or snowfall, ice accumulation and inclement weather. Vehicles will be ticketed and fined.

  • Do not shovel or plow snow from your driveway or walkway into the street. Pile the snow in your yard.

  • Maintain and repair your mailbox posts. Mailboxes should not extend past the face of the curb.

  • Snow must be removed from the sidewalk along your property within a reasonable time but not later than 12 hours after the cessation of snowfall.

  • If possible, place snow on the side of driveway opposite the direction that the plow travels. By doing so the plow will carry snow away from driveway rather than into it.
