Two chances to turn over a new leaf

November 25, 2013 by  

Multitudes of falling leaves are now collecting on East Brunswick lawns and streets, and officials in the area are reminded that it is important to remember to dispose of them properly so they do not clog the gutters and drains.

Leaf collection in East Brunswick is going on now through the end of December. Residents can bag their leaves, rake them to the curb line, drop them off at the recycling center, or hire a contract to dispose of them. The leave collection schedule is available on the Township’s website. Only leaves will be collected; all branches, trash, and debris needs to be removed from the leaves before they are placed by the curb for disposal.

Also on an outdoor theme, students interested in jobs with the parks and recreation department this summer should head to the Summer Job Expo on Saturday, November 30, at the Cultural Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road. The job fair is to fill positions at Crystal Springs, Day Camp, Daisy, and Summer Theatre.

The event will be held from 10:00 am. to 2:00 p.m. Students must be age 16 by June 30, 2014 in order to apply for a position with most of these places, although they can be 15 to take part in Crystal Springs

Applicants need to bring two forms of ID, including a photo ID and a passport, birth certificate, or Social Security card. They could use a local printing company as a resource to create a professional looking resume and cover letter.
