With NJ still in the “Orange – High Transmission Zone” at this time and the need for residents to plan for any upcoming town wide yard sale, the Borough has decided to schedule the sale for the fall for the protection of all residents and visitors. Our health professionals agree that welcoming hundreds of visitors into town at this point in the pandemic is risky, and unwise. While conditions could improve by June, waiting until then to confirm any date is unfair to those that need to plan.
The date of the 2021 Town Wide Yard Sale will be the weekend of September 18-19th. During that weekend, individual permits are not required to conduct private yard sales. The annual bulk trash collection event will be scheduled for the regular collection date following the sale (Tuesday, 9/21). There will not be a June bulk trash collection this year, only the one in September.
Residents are welcome to conduct private yard sales at any time. The fees remain waived during the COVID-19 State of Emergency but permits are required (except during yard sale weekend). A maximum number of 20 permits will be issued for any date and issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Please click below for a yard sale permit application. Completed applications may be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. A signed permit will be returned for display at your sale.
We hope the September event is a success and certainly hope for continued improvement on the pandemic front. We’ll get through this together, and hopefully return to “normal” soon.
