NEW YARD WASTE ORDINANCE

A new township ordinance (No. 3-2013) prohibits residents from using plastic bags for yard waste collection. Beginning October 2013, residents should place leaves and grass in biodegradable Kraft bags or in a marked container.  If you have an additional trash can, you can place the loose leaves/grass materials in a labeled trash container.  Yard waste stickers “Yard Waste Only” are available from the ACUA (800-613-2282) or Buena Vista Township.  Kraft yard waste bags are available at most home improvement stores, hardware stores, and from the ACUA on Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township. 

“Plastic bags are a real problem for yard waste recycling. Each bag must be opened and emptied by hand at the compost site. Kraft bags can be recycled right along with the yard waste and this saves time, labor and money,” Rick Dovey, ACUA President said.

 For additional information on recycling contact ACUA at 800-613-2282 or online at www.acua.com.

2014 Miss Buena Pageant

The 2014 Miss Buena Pageant is just around the corner.  If you are a young lady in grades 9 to 12 you are eligible to enter the contest.  Contestants are judged in three categories:  casual wear, talent, and evening gown.  The Special Events Committee is looking for interested young ladies to start thinking about this event and be prepared for more details coming out next month.  Miss Buena is planned for February 2014.  The date and location will be announced soon.  Check cable Channel 9 or our website.  For more information please call Dolores Comparri at 856-697-1482 after 6 pm or Joan in Administration at (856) 697-2100 or (609) 561-5650 extension 8.

Donations for Thanksgiving Food Drive

 

Buena Vista Township is once again seeking to lend a helping hand to those less fortunate in our community at Thanksgiving time.  We are accepting canned food and non-perishable food items that will go to help the food bank at the Dr. Martin Luther King Community Center and the Abundant Living Church food bank.  Food collection containers will be located at each of the Post Offices in the Township and at Township Hall plus the MLK Center on Jackson Road in Newtonville.  This program has been very successful in the past.  Please give from your heart.

 

Buena Vista Township Municipal Building will be closed on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
