Recycling Center Cameras

Based upon a recent review of video recordings at the Essex Fells Recycling Center it has come to our attention that perhaps no one thought that anyone was watching.  However, the recycling center is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by video cameras. If you are observed dumping prohibited items at the recycling center you will receive a formal warning (along with a nice still image of the event) and be asked to reclaim those items. Starting July 1st warnings will be replaced by summonses and a public appearance in court. Leaving these non-recyclable items behind costs the Borough time, money and creates a hazardous condition. Please bring Oil, Paint, Chemicals, Batteries, etc to the Essex County Hazardous Waste Collection Day Thank You!

May 2018 Programs at the Essex County Environmental Center

A variety of programs are being offered at the Essex County Environmental Center during the month of April that will teach children and adults about nature and help them gain a greater appreciation and understanding of our environment. Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. invites children and adults to visit the Environmental Center where they can enjoy an enriching recreational experience through nature and conservation activities.

“Our Environmental Center has become the premiere location for environmental education and nature appreciation. With the help of our partner groups, our dynamic schedule of events and activities will captivate all ages,” DiVincenzo said. “Walk in our woods, discover habitats, get pointers on gardening, learn about nature photography and much more. It’s all about nature and it’s all at our Environmental Center,” he added.

Events scheduled for May are as follows:

Wrap with Your Kids

Join the 15-Minute Child Break Parent Presentation and spend an hour learning how to talk to your kids about drugs and alcohol. The presentation will be held on May 31, 2018 at Essex Fells Elementary School, 102 Hawthorne Rd., at 6:30 p.m.

Statistics show, children who have meals with adults at home are less likely to use drugs. In fact, by having just one meal a day with your child, you could decrease the likelihood that she’ll try marijuana by up to two-thirds.

For more information call the Essex Fells Police Department at 973-226-3723.

Let’s Go Fishing in Essex County!

Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. and the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs invite the public to participate in Essex County’s 2018 Fishing Derbies. The free events will be held in seven locations in the Essex County Park System.

“Our fishing derbies are an excellent opportunity for our children to enjoy the historic Essex County Park System in a different and fun way. You’ll have a great time creating your own ‘big fish’ stories and spending some quality time with your friends and family in some of the most beautiful parks in the area,” DiVincenzo said. “I invite everyone to come out, cast their lines, Experience Essex and take a look at the improvements we are making to revitalize our parks,” he noted.

Sponsored by the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, each derby is free and open to children ages 15 and younger. All children must be accompanied by an adult and bring their own fishing pole, bait, bucket and chair. Children are encouraged to bring their own fishing poles. Prizes in various age categories for catching the first and most fish will be awarded at the conclusion of each derby.

The fishing derbies will be held as follows:
