FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. -- Gaeta Recycling is collecting garbage in Franklin Lakes twice a week through September.
The second collection day will start Monday for residents with a Monday through Thursday collection.
During the months when there are two collection days, if the collection day falls on a holiday, garbage will be collected on the next scheduled collection day.
There will be no change in the recycling collection schedule.
Remember to keep bears away with good garbage habits. For those who live in areas where black bears have been sighted, secure trash containers and place them curbside as close to pick-up time as possible.
Wash or spray trash containers with a disinfectant in order to eliminate food odors.
Garbage should be placed in garbage cans, containers or plastic bags at the curb no earlier than 3 p.m. the evening before collection day or no later than 6 a.m. the morning of the collection.
All empty cans and containers must be removed by 7 p.m. collection day.
