The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
We at Masa U’Matan weekly notified the public last week that the Lakewood Township Department of Public Works lists Lincoln’s Birthday, which is Monday, February 12 as a holiday and that therefore people should put out their trash for pickup a day later than usual. However, we have been informed by several people that their Monday trash was actually picked up on Monday and that those who didn’t put it out as per our information will apparently lose the opportunity to have their bins emptied this week. We don’t know why the workers would come on a holiday or what the meaning of “holiday” is if you have to come to work as usual, but to be on the safe side everyone should put their trash out on their usual evening and not a day later.
Thank you for helping out the public in this matter.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Good evening. Public works pushes pickup back a day with holidays including today’s. However we have crews in even on holidays and they will pick up the cans of anyone who has trash out. Do not worry they will do the entire route tomorrow. Your cans will be picked up. This also goes for the rest of the weeks pickups for other zones.
Sorry for the confusion.
