Department of Public Works
The DPW is responsible for the maintenance of all municipal roads, including snow removal, traffic signs and traffic signals. In addition, the DPW maintains all municipal facilities, parks and vehicles, the storm water drainage system, sewage system, and the firebox alarm system.
Garbage and recycling collection are handled by contracted haulers, but managed by the DPW. Complaints about missed pick-ups should be directed to the DPW by calling 973-256-1264 and selecting option 1 for the main office.
Since Woodland Park operates its own Water Company, the DPW is charged with maintaining the water system in the sections of the borough served by the municipally-owned water company. The borough owns and maintains a 1-million gallon water tank located on Washington Drive. A second tank was added on Garret Mountain at the site of the Four Seasons At Great Notch community to serves as a back-up and to maintain water pressure during emergencies.
The Department of Water Pollution Control, headed by the Superintendent of the DPW, is responsible for the sanitary sewer system. So, it also falls upon the DPW to maintain the Borough’s sanitary sewers. Sewage treatment is no longer done at a DPW facility. Instead, Woodland Park’s sewage is carried to the Passaic Valley Sewage Commission’s treatment plant in Newark by the same main that serves Little Falls and Totowa.
