COVID-19  Information from the Chatham Borough Health Department




FEEDBACK REQUESTED! Chatham Borough is in the process of examining a number of options for garbage and bulk waste collection and disposal, as the current contract expires next spring. We would like to hear from residents about their preferences related to garbage and bulk waste. (Recycling program changes will be looked at in the future, but are not part of this survey.)  Paper copies are available for pickup in the vestibule at Borough Hall.



PSE&G will continue line repairs and road reconstruction through mid October.  We appreciate your cooperation; should you have questions or concerns about specific areas, please contact Borough Engineer Vince DeNave at  vdenave@chathamborough.org.


The conversation with the Chatham Police Chiefs was recorded.
