Happy Holidays from Mayor Cahn and Township Council Seasons Greetings.gif
As we approach the end of 2014, the members of Township Council and I wish all of Cherry Hill’s residents a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year. Every day, we consider ourselves fortunate to be able to serve a community that is as vibrant and strong as Cherry Hill. Having the opportunity to meet and work with so many wonderful individuals is one of my favorite parts of my job as Mayor, and I look forward to continuing our work together in the New Year. I wish you all the best in 2015 and beyond.

Cherry Hill FOP hosts Christmas party for children with special needs FOP Christmas Party 1.jpg
Cherry Hill FOP Lodge #28 held its annual Christmas party for children with special needs on Monday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The day’s festivities included a visit from the Phillie Phanatic, and our Cherry Hill Police Officers volunteered their time to help serve lunch and play with the children in attendance. Students from Cherry Hill High Schools East and West made decorations and hosted the event, as well. The party has been a tradition for children in our area for more than 40 years, and is an opportunity for our officers to interact with the community and make the holiday season a little brighter. Special thanks to this year’s sponsors, ShopRite, the Crowne Plaza, Pepsi, Short Hills Deli and the Philadelphia Phillies. With the help of all involved, this year’s event was an overwhelming success, and I’m proud of the work our men and women in uniform do throughout the year to make Cherry Hill an even better place to live and play. 


Town Hall hours, trash-collection schedule for the New Year holiday
The Municipal Building will close for the Christmas holiday at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 31, and will be closed on Thursday, Jan. 1, in celebration of the New Year. Our offices will reopen for normal business hours on Friday, Jan. 2. 
There will be no trash, yard-waste or recycling collection on Thursday. Instead, both Thursday’s and Friday’s collections will be completed on Friday. All other collection days will remain the same. Please note that there may be a one-day delay in recycling pickup, to allow for property RecycleBank crediting. If you have any questions or concerns about your trash collection, please contact the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422, or Republic Services of NJ at (856) 234-4000.

Recycle your Christmas tree, cardboard and other holiday remnants Christmas-tree-recycling.jpg
As you clean up from your family's holiday festivities, remember that a number of items can be recycled either curbside in your big blue can, or by dropping them off at the Department of Public Works at 1 Perina Blvd.
  • Christmas trees can be recycled curbside as part of your weekly yard-waste pickup, or taken to a designated tree-drop location that will be set up in the Public Works yard on Perina Blvd. Remember: trees wrapped in plastic bags will not be collected.
  • Old electronics and broken/unused Christmas lights are considered e-waste, and can't be recycled at the curb or in your blue can. However, they can be dropped off, 24/7, at the e-waste shed in the Public Works yard.
  • Cardboard, wrapping paper and cards can be recycled in your big blue recycling can on your regular trash day. Cardboard must be broken down and placed in your can. Excess cardboard can be dropped off in two designated dumpsters to the rear of the Public Works yard.
These are just a few of the common holiday items that can be recycled in Cherry Hill. For more information, visit the Public Works page on the Township website, or call DPW directly at (856) 424-4422.

Cherry Hill Police caution: Parents Who Host Lose the Most Parents Who Host CHPD.png
During this holiday season of celebrations, the Cherry Hill Police Department reminds parents of the dangers of allowing underage teens to consume alcohol, even at home. Many parents believe underage drinking is "a part of growing up," or that it's safer for teens and their friends to drink, as long as it's within the home. However, that's hardly the case. Under New Jersey's underage drinking laws (N.J.S.A. 2C:33-17), parents who provide alcohol to minors may be subject to criminal prosecution and civil penalties, particularly when serving a minor who is subsequently involved in incidents that cause death or injury. Protect yourself and your children when hosting teen parties: Don't supply alcohol or allow it to be consumed at your home; ensure your teen's friends don't bring alcohol into your home, and stay at home when your teen has a party. Talk to other parents about the dangers of serving alcohol at youth events, and report underage drinking. What some people consider a rite of passage can carry serious and long-lasting consequences for everyone involved.
