Over the past several days, the Medford Township Police Department has responded to numerous reports of criminal mischief in the South portion of the Township. The criminal mischief complaints include destroyed mailboxes and spray painted property. The majority of the incidents have occurred in the Tamarac and Highbridge neighborhoods; however, there have been incidents in other parts of the Township, as well. The Police Department is urging residents to be observant and to report all suspicious people and activity. If anybody has any information on any of these incidents, they are urged to contact the Police Department at 609-267-8300.
The Medford Township Police will be hosting an Operation Take Back local collection site as part of the D.E.A. Operation Take Back medicine disposal day. The event will take place at the Medford Township Public Safety Building, located at 91 Union Street in Medford, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2013. This initiative, open to all residents, was organized to encourage local community residents to properly dispose of their unused, unwanted and expired medicine anonymously.
The pickup of vegetative debris, or brush, left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy will begin this week. Residents are asked to move all brush curbside immediately and to avoid placing it under wires or low hanging trees. The Township has contracted with Ceres Environmental to remove and dispose of the brush along the Township right-of-way. Brush pickup is expected to begin within the next day or two in Zone 1 and will progress rapidly through the remainder of the zones. The contractor will be working during daylight hours, seven days a week and will only make one pass. Any problems or issues with the contractor should be reported to the Public Works Department at 609-654-2608, ext. 322.
The pickup of brush is separate and apart from the Township leaf collection program. Please follow previous guidance issued by the Public Works Department regarding the status of leaf collection.
