- Debris pickup in A.C.
Atlantic City Public Works crews will pick up debris from Hurricane Sandy today in Lower Chelsea, Gardner’s Basin and the South Inlet.
Trucks will start at 7 a.m. and progress through each neighborhood, ending about 5 p.m. They’ll begin on Trenton Avenue, ending at Jackson Avenue in Lower Chelsea, and on Massachusetts Avenue, ending at Maine Avenue at the other end of town. Fewer communal trash bins will be kept citywide because of the increasing construction debris instead of the household trash the city’s efforts primarily address. The city will stop taking construction debris Dec. 15.
Estimated debris hauled from South Jersey shore towns since Hurricane Sandy:
Margate: 2,700 tons
Atlantic City: 2,500+ tons
Ventnor: 1,932 tons
Longport: 400 tons
Sources: Atlantic City Public Works Director Paul Jerkins; Atlantic City Office of Emergency Management; Margate City Clerk Tom Hiltner; Longport Borough Commissioner Jim Leeds; Ventnor Mayor Mike Bagnell
- Food distribution
Atlantic City officials will distribute food to residents Friday.
The event will run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or until supplies run out, at the Patsy Wallace Center, 2231 Arctic Ave. Proof of residency is required. T-Mobile and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey are partnering with the city to sponsor the distribution. More information is available from the city Department of Health & Human Services at 609-347-5643.
