BAYONNE MAYOR DAVIS ANNOUNCES STORM CLEAN-UP WITH DUMPSTERS AND EXTRA CURBSIDE PICK-UPS

          On the night of Wednesday, September 1, 2021, the remnants of Hurricane Ida dumped more than nine inches of rain on Bayonne, causing numerous basements to flood.  As a result, property owners have to dispose of water-damaged refuse throughout the City.  Mayor Jimmy Davis has announced two ways in which the City has arranged to help residents.

Working with the Bayonne Department of Public Works, A&L Disposal has set up dumpsters in various hard-hit parts of the community for the convenience of our residents.  Dumpsters have been placed or will be placed on 1st Street (just east of Kennedy Blvd.), Cottage Street and Hobart Avenue, 10th Street and Avenue A, at 14th Street and Avenue E, 22nd Street and Avenue F, 27th Street and Avenue E, near 33rd Street and Avenue A, 34th Street and Avenue E, 45th Street and Avenue C, and Sycamore Road and Colonial Drive.  The City has the authority to add other locations. This positioning of dumpsters will give neighborhood residents the opportunity to deposit storm-damaged refuse for removal.  Please do NOT use these dumpsters for regular household garbage, only for storm-damaged items.

On Saturday, September 4, A&L Disposal will send out trucks for curbside pick-ups of storm-damaged items that residents would like to get rid of.  If you have placed or will be placing items at curbside for pick-up, please inform the Department of Public Works at 201-858-6131 by 3:00 p.m. on Friday, September 3.  Public Works will share that list with A&L. Due to the expected demand for this service, please understand that it may take the company a while to get to your property.

Bayonne Residents Need to Wrap Mattresses for Curbside Pick-Up

hearing on block grant

Bayonne Mayor Davis advised Bayonne residents to wrap mattresses that they want to be picked up by sanitation crews. The mattresses can be wrapped either in plastic or in mattress covers. Mayor Davis said,

“Due to current health concerns, the mattresses must be wrapped for the protection of the sanitation workers.” The Bayonne Department of Public Works estimates that Bayonne residents dispose of five to twelve mattresses per week.

This issue has arisen recently, because some sanitation workers have bypassed unwrapped mattresses. City officials want to make sure that residents set out wrapped mattresses for curbside pick-up, so that they will be picked up and not become eyesores on local streets.

          Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne is setting up an additional site for the Coronavirus vaccine at the Bayonne Community Museum, which is located at 9th Street and Broadway.  Vaccinations will start at that location by appointment only on Wednesday, March 17.  Mayor Davis said, “The goal of opening the museum building as a major vaccination center is to double Bayonne’s vaccination capacity each week. Having this additional location will help us achieve the goal of vaccinating the majority of our adult residents.”  During the first week, vaccinations will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  After that, vaccinations at that site will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The schedule will be adjusted as needed as the vaccine supply increases. 

          The City of Bayonne is contracting with Mobile Health, a New York-based company, to administer a major portion of the local vaccination program.
