MFD TWELFTH NIGHT CHRISTMAS TREE BONFIRE CELEBRATION CANCELLED

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MFD TWELFTH NIGHT CHRISTMAS TREE BONFIRE CELEBRATION CANCELLED

 

Mendham Borough Residents Directed to Contact Department of Public Works to Schedule Christmas Tree Pick-Up

MENDHAM, NJ – December 13, 2017 – After nearly 30 years of providing Borough residents with a final toast to the holiday season, the annual Twelfth Night Christmas Tree Bonfire Celebration, is cancelled. Due to new and more stringent regulations at the Department of Environmental Protection and the need to comply with the NJ Clean Air Act, the Mendham Fire Department today announced it is not able to receive the desired permit for the event it had planned, and therefore is cancelling the celebration, originally scheduled for Sunday, January 7, at the Borough Park.

In addition, with no opportunity to burn Christmas Trees at its annual event, the Mendham Fire Department will no longer pick up trees from Borough residents. The Fire Department provided this service successfully for years in exchange for donations. Instead, Borough residents should schedule tree pick-up with the Department of Public Works directly by calling (973) 543-6535 or submit a “Brush Pick-Up” request by filling out the form on the Borough’s website (click here). Resident’s should not drop their trees off at the Borough Park or at the DPW Yard.

“We’ve enjoyed hosting the Twelfth Night Celebration, and it’s a shame to see such a great Mendham Borough tradition end,” said Fire Chief, Mike Bruin.
