Welcome From The Dept. Of Public Works
*****NO PLASTIC BAGS*****
Please refrain from using plastic bags when putting your recycling to the curb or your recycling "will not be picked up"
Greetings from the Public Works
Soon the leaves will start to turn and another fall season will be upon us. This year our curbside leaf pick up will run from October 15th through December 1st,2019. All leaves must be raked to the curb by December 1st, 2019 for pickup.Any leaves you have after December 1st, 2019 may be brought to the recycling center at 325 Piermont Road for disposal. We remind you to please refrain from placing any branches, rocks, or debris in with the leaves. Please remind your landscapers not to put anything into the leaf piles. These things can slow down our pick up by damaging the vacuums and causing unnecessary repairs.
There is no set schedule for leaf pick up. We put all the crews in different sections of town. When all the streets have been picked up, we start over. This seems to work best with everyone getting multiple pickups. Weather conditions have a great impact on the efficiency of our pick up, so please be patient and bear with us through this very busy time. If you have any questions, please call 567-2184. Thank you.
Major Storms and Hurricanes
What do I do with branches and debris that fell from a storm?
Currently your garbage contractor is picking up brush along with the grass and garden debris. Branches must be less than 4 feet in length, tied and bundled, and placed at the curb. NO PLASTIC BAGS or LOOSE BRANCHES.
What if my branch is too big to tie and bundle?
Branches that are too big to tie and bundle can be dragged to the curb. The DPW will come by and chip them at our convenience. If the chipper went by before you put out you branches, you are responsible to have them removed. So get them out ASAP.
What if my branch is too big to drag to the curb and not from a town tree?
If your branch is too big to drag to the curb you must find other means of disposing them.
What do I do with my rakings?
We would like to remind you that your garbage contractor is currently picking up grass and garden debris curbside on Wednesdays through November. It must be placed in barrels no larger than 30 gallons and placed at the curb prior to 7:00 AM. NO PLASTIC BAGS. You are reminded that there is a Borough ordinance that prohibits dumping of debris on borough streets.
What to do if I miss a pickup?
Residents may also bring their grass, garden debris and branches to the DPW Recycling Center. NO PLASTIC BAGS. The Recycling Center is located at 325 Piermont Rd. and is open Monday – Friday, 7:00 AM – 3:00 PM and Saturdays, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Please note: there will be no curbside grass and garden debris pick up from December 1st, 2018 to March 1st, 2019. Garden debris can be brought to the DPW yard.

Cresskill Police Department
The Cresskill Police Department is an Accredited Law Enforcement agency located behind the Borough Hall off of Dogwood Lane. We are staffed by 22 Officers and 4 full time dispatchers. Out of the 22 Officers, 2 are assigned to the detective bureau, 1 is assigned to the juvenile detective bureau, and 1 is assigned to the traffic bureau. There are 4 rotating road patrol squads each consisting of a road Sergeant and Patrolmen, supplemented by assistance from Lieutenants, Detectives, and Traffic. We are an "in house" dispatched department, meaning when you call our desk at 201-568-1400, a dispatcher actually sitting in our headquarters, not a large call center, will take your call. Our four full time dispatchers are also supplemented by per-diem dispatchers when the need arises. Our department also has class 1 Special Law Enforcement Officers who assist us with large events and crowd control.
