More free stuff I saw on Franklin Street....


Do we put our address in the memo on our check and make it out to DARE?

Morgan Morgan

Address in the memo yes, or write a separate note. But the check should be made out to "Hackettstown Committee for Crime Prevention" or just "HCCP".


Great thanks!

You're welcome. Good luck with your sale. I've done it for a bunch of years now. If nothing else it helps out those programs while meeting nice people and getting rid of stuff you really didn't need anyway. ;-)


GC-We did it last year and did a wonderful job! Very busy but we enjoy it! :) good luck with yours also lets hope for a beautiful day!

The Forum lets you click on the envelope to send mail - I'd be very careful of posting real emails publicly when there's no need for that.

The map is usually put up on the town web site, hackettstown.net so there should be no need to email it to anyone.


Saw free stuff on Hurley Dr.


The maps are available for this weekends' yardsale. See the previous post for
websites and the location of maps.
Thank you to all who generously donated to sponsor this traditional event.

I know as a rule, in the years past that Sunday doesnt have as many folks having the sales............how many of you all will set up for tomorrow? Money is burning a whole in my pocket lol

The real issue with tomorrow is going to be the weather. Current forecast is for early rain the whole morning and only clearly later when most sales are already done one way or the other.

I can only say that we have to separate items into piles of where to donate so you can always stop in as long as the garage doors are open. ;-)


Went hours in search of a simple small kitchen table with or with out chairs--if you know of anywhere please let me know--thanks.

Re: Hackettstown Townwide Yard Sale 2019 4/27&28

I am a Literacy Specialist at Columbus Elementary in Trenton, NJ. The school contains just over 400 students in grades K-5. As someone who was born and raised in Hackettstown, I never had a shortage of reading materials available. From the beautiful library in town to the classrooms stocked with books, I always had access to reading material. After working in Trenton for the past several years, I realized how fortunate I was to have books accessible to borrow and a large collection to call my own. While some of the students in our district have some books at home, many have none at all. I knew something needed to be done. This year we have partnered with Senator Shirley Turner's office and are hosting a large Book Giveaway on May 24th. Our vision is to collect over 4,000 books so that each student in our school can self select 10 books to add to their at-home libraries and hopefully foster a love for reading. If anyone has children's books that they would like to donate towards this initiative, I would be willing to pick them up. Thank you again for your kindness and consideration. (Please see the flyer for more information)

I'm not going to set up for tomorrow. We were not nearly as busy as last year, much fewer visitors. Throw rain into the mix and not worth it. I hope some of you did better.

Marcella - I'd like to let you know but you didn't put in an email to be able to.


@ Tapes, still interested in VHS? I have about 125. No SiFi

Any word on this years? I checked the towns website and nothing there yet? Same goes for town clean up? Trying to get some spring cleaning plan together.

The Clean Up dates are set by the town at the beginning of the year. The schedule is mailed out and can always be found on the Public Works section of the web site:

https://www.hackettstown.net/sites/hackettstownnj/files/uploads/2020_dpw_schedule_of_events.pdf

Spring Cleanup this year is April 17 & April 18.

The dates for the yard sale are set by the HCCP. That usually happens in March, it's too early to know. Once set the mailers for that usually go out the same week.


Yard sale was just announced at Town council meeting tonight. April 25th and 26th

I SO SO wish they did the clean up AFTER the yard sale. Years ago they did. I would push everything that didn't sell at the yard sale curb side and the next week town would come by and pick it all up. That was when they picked up the junk curb side.

I don't mind driving my junk to the fire house...…….having a truck makes it easy. They are wonderful about unloading it themselves....big big help, but boy it would be nice to be able to throw out what doesn't sell at the yard sale during the clean up......I wonder why they changed it, but if memory serves, as soon as clean up was no longer curb side pick up the date moved to before the yard sale.. :(

And yes, thank you GC and Jim L for the info.

The Spring cleanup is for trash and junk. If you think you could sell it at the yard sale than it’s not junk and therefore shouldn’t be thrown out, It should be donated.

Best thing to do is schedule a donation pickup for that Monday after the yard sale to take anything that you didn’t sell.

Thank you all for the info. I can now start planning for my garage sale.

I asked on another thread, then found this one. Jim L did they cancel the clean up for 17th and 18th of April?

I wouldn't be surprised with all that is going on....but of course this year I have three pieces of furniture that I'd love to get rid of. Its amazing how much cleaning up and out one can do when stuck in the house day after day after day. lol

Also does anyone know if the dump is open to the public in Oxford? I may just load up the truck and take it there.

Here is their website to contact.


littlelu - There was a Nixle alert as well as something on the town web page about cancellations of DPW events. That includes cleanup days, electronics day, the brush chipping, and grass clipping collection. All called off until further notice.

https://www.hackettstown.net/home/news/2020-schedule-events-postponed-until-further-notice


yes, unfortunately, all the events got postponed. And i'm with you i have an entire side of the house worth of stuff i was eagerly waiting to get rid off. I believe the Oxford dump is still open, but i would call to confirm.

Does anyone know if the brush chipping event in early June is canceled? I'm hoping it is still on!


https://www.hackettstown.net/public-works/pages/dpw-schedule-events-suspended-until-further-notice

According to the DPW page on the Hackettstown official website, all events are postponed. I would call the number in the link to confirm.


Grass clippings is the one DPW activity that was announced to be up and running again.

It's still a little bit away but there has been no announcement about brush chipping. Unless they announce that soon, it's not going to happen.
