What to Consider When Voting On November 4

When casting your vote on Tuesday for or against the fate of our TRANSFER STATION… Please consider the following....

  • What will the cost of curbside pick-up increase to after the initial contract is over?
    • Will pick-up always be paid by the township or will trash pick-up eventually be paid for by the individual homeowner when it becomes too expensive for the township to afford?
      • Will all of our residents be able to afford this?
  • The company providing this services what is their rating?
    • Have we received references from other townships or private citizens that use them?
  • Trash containers must be supplied by the homeowner
    • Three ~ 64 gallon cans are to be place at the end of your driveway or in the road.
    • What happens if one of the cans blows into the center of the roadway and causes an accident? Is the township liable for this ~ no the homeowner is.
    • Will cans be removed promptly or will the cans be left out until the resident or Gun Club returns to the area?
      • Will an ordinance be created to fine you if your cans are not removed promptly or if they are put out to early?
      • This will create another hardship for our residents
    • Some of our physically challenged and senior citizens have made arrangements to have their trash taken to the transfer station.
      • Will someone be able to help them take their trash cans and recycling cans to the curb or roadway?
    • What about the people that live down a dirt road?
      • Will the trash truck be going down there or will they have to bring their trash to the nearest paved road?
  • Where will these trucks turn around? Will they back down the street if a homeowner refuses to let them turn around in their driveway?
    • Nobody wants their property destroyed by the wheels of a trash or recycling truck.
  • White goods (refrigerators, dryers, hot water heaters) will be picked up once per month. 
    • Will the woods now become littered with these items for those that will not wait that long to dispose of them?
      • What about the safety of our children ~ will all of these items have the doors removed?
      • Who will check for illegal dumpers?
      • Do the NJ State Police even come to Chatsworth anymore?
  • Nonresident and contractor use of our transfer station isn’t this the responsibility of the township?
    • Vehicle tags are handed out yearly and should be checked.
    • Why contractors should be using our facilities anyway.
      • Homeowners should have the removal of construction debris built into the price of the job.
  • If recycling is a big concern, why can’t the county pick up our recycling curbside and the transfer station remain open?

How Many People Have Actually Asked For This?

At The Last Meeting When Asked The Only Person That Said He Was Approached By Residents About Trash Removal Was The Mayor, Both Committeemen Said That Neither One Of Them Were Asked About This.  Is This Truly Something That Everyone Wants Or Just A Select Few.

ONCE THE TRANSFER STATION IS GONE, WE WILL NEVER GET IT BACK.
