Spring Clean-Up Program
The Township of
Sparta?s Public Works Department will begin our Township-wide spring clean-up
on, or around, April 4th, 2016. Residents are urged to rake the grit from their
lawn curbside prior to their road being swept. We will continue sweeping until
all roads are completed. We are governed by NJ Stormwater
Regulations when it comes to our sweeping responsibilities.
We ask that you keep
your roadways as clear as possible when sweeping begins. Cars, garbage cans and
recreational items such as basketball hoops can all create a hindrance for the
sweeper as it travels your roadway. With the curb line free of obstacles, we
will be able to complete the street sweeping in a more efficient and
Lawn repairs by the
Township will begin in late April early May. We will be out repairing damage
that was done to resident?s lawns resulting from snow plowing operations as
soon as the weather gets warm enough to move topsoil. Repairs include
reapplying topsoil, seed and hay to the damaged area as necessary.
Contact our Public
Works office at 973-729-6178 or by email at Sparta.DPW@spartanj.org to request
maintenance on broken asphalt, Belgium block and concrete curbing as well as
pot holes and catch basin repairs.
Please try to give a precise location; i.e.: house number & street
name and we will schedule maintenance as soon as time and weather permits.
Please do not rake
lawn debris into the roadway. Lawn debris consists of organic waste such as
leaves, branches or grass clipping that may flow into the drainage system and
create a clog so the drains will not perform adequately during rains or heavy
storms. Residents can dispose of vegetative waste at the SCMUA located on Rt.
94 in Lafayette Township. Information on disposal can be found here.
As always, the
Township appreciates your patience and cooperation.
