Happening This Week....

News for the week.

2/27 - Township Committee Meeting - 7:00PM

3/3 - Recycling Depot 9:00AM - NoonJ

Join the Boonton Township Green Team and go #meatlessmondays in march. Skipping meat one day a week is good for you, great for your nation’s health, and better for the planet. The Boonton Township Green Team is launching March Meatless Mondays for all the right reasons. Look for recipes in March

Greens help you go green! Eating less meat helps contribute to reducing greenhouse emissions from production and transportation of livestock. It also cuts back on livestock water-use, which is significantly higher than it is for produce.


Please make sure that you or your contractor do not shovel, blow or plow snow from your driveway into the road.  It is important to keep the roads clear of snow.  Our plow drivers do their best to keep from piling the snow in front of the mailbox, but clearing that area is the homeowner's responsibility.  And remember - there is no overnight parking permitted on any road/street within the Township.

In order to avoid having the edge of your property (lawn, curbing, etc.) damaged please consider placing some 3’ high markers along the edge of your   property.  This provides a reference point for the plow drivers while clearing the roadways.



Recycling Hints:

1. Recycle your plastic bags at Kings and Acme. Look for the receptacle in front of the store. When grocery shopping use a tote bag when every  possible.

2. Cardboard must be flatten when being put out for Curbside Pickup or taken to the Recycling Depot

3.  Plastic Bottle caps go into the trash.  Make sure all bottles are clean and empty of fluids when  you put them in your recycling container.

4. Curbside recycling must be put in a plastic can. The Township Does not accept curbside recycling  in plastic bags.

5.    Only recycle the  Top part of the  Pizza  Box. The bottom  part which is greasy goes into the  trash.

6.    Household alkaline batteries go into the trash.  Only Rechargeable  batteries have to  berecycled.  The Township has a collection box at Town Hall.



The Boonton Township Municipal Alliance Committee and Green Team are excited to partner with the North Jersey Health Collaborative (NJHC) to provide you with the opportunity to share what health looks like in your neighborhood!

The NJHC is a group of more than 150 organizations working together to create healthy communities and healthy people. Every three years, the NJHC tries to figure out what topics to focus on to improve health across northern New Jersey.

To make sure we’re choosing the topics that really matter, we’re asking YOU to share your opinions and experiences.

The survey is easy to complete and it takes less than 15 minutes! Your answers are completely confidential and it’s up to you whether or not you want to share your voice.

By completing the survey, you can also enter for a chance to win $100 or the grand prize…a football signed by the New York Jets!

You can complete the survey online using this link or you can request a hard copy.

The survey is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic.

Thank you for your participation and for working with us promote health in your neighborhood and across northern New Jersey!
