Newark, NJ – November 9, 2012 - Mayor Cory A.

Residents who have private contractors for curbside trash and recycling collection will not be affected. In addition, alternate side of the street parking will be suspended.
“Veterans’ Day is increasingly becoming one of our most poignant holidays, as we honor the courage of men and women who have served our country, protecting our liberties, sacrificing their lives in our defense. Their valor defines us as a nation,” Mayor Booker said. “I urge all residents to take time on this holiday to honor our service members past and present.”
Garbage and paper recycling collection will resume on Tuesday morning, November 13th. Residents must place their refuse at their curbs before 6 a.m. that day, and pick-ups will be made as regularly scheduled.
