“As the weather begins to warm up we are doing a full mobilization of our DPW to clean up our roads,” said state Senator (D-32)/North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco.

“This winter was pretty harsh and the accumulation of snow, salt and debris certainly took its toll on our roads. This massive cleanup effort will leave North Bergen roads pristine, as we’ve grown accustomed to seeing them.”

The township DPW is out in full force with four sweeper crews with blowers, four broom and bucket crews and two pothole crews that move to cleanup at the end of the day.

Additionally, officials are reminding residents that street sweeping resumed yesterday and therefore they are asked to follow parking regulations posted along town roads.
