Message from Mayor Scarpelli

Dear Resident,

As I complete my ninth year as Director of Public Works, I would again like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for continuing to make our recycling program such a huge success. As a result of your efforts, the program is expanded each year, going above and beyond county and state requirements.

In the last two years we made several modifications in order to maximize our revenue and adapt to the constant changes in the recycling industry and markets.  Although these changes were challenging, both the DPW and our residents adjusted to these revisions and made our program more dynamic.

Thank you for your continued cooperation!

Mayor Dr. Joseph P. Scarpelli
Director of Public Works
