 RECYCLING UPDATE The Borough of Brooklawn’s recycling rate has been increasing each year. Please continue to separate recyclables out of the trash stream. Not only is it the best for the environment, but financially as well. Recycling saves Brooklawn tax payers about $ 40.00/ton of trash, which is significant savings. Thank you residents

IN CASE OF SNOW, please use driveways and PLEASE TRY TO REFRAIN FROM PARKING IN THE ALLEYS. It is very hard to plow snow in the alleys and is more difficult when there are cars parked there. If a vehicle is in the way, the alley WILL NOT be plowed. Public works will try to clear all streets as efficiently as possible. Please wait to clear your driveway apron until we have cleared the street. Also please do not blow snow back into the street.

Please remember to call 856-456-3434 for any water or sewer emergencies you may encounter after working hours. During working hours between 7:00 am – 3:30 pm Call 856-456-2638 or 856-456-0750.

Thank you for you continued cooperation.
