From Chief Mark Roddy:
It has come to our attention that individuals are improperly discarding their used personal protection equipment (PPE's), such as gloves and masks, outside of some of our businesses that have been determined to be essential and permitted to be open. This behavior is irresponsible, potentially hazardous, and disrespectful to not only those who have to clean this up but to all citizens as well. These businesses are open to assist you and the employees of these businesses do not need additional exposure risks by having to clean up the litter created by some irresponsible individuals . Be advised that heavy penalties may be incurred should you be observed engaging in this reckless behavior. I encourage all of you to immediately notify this department if you observe anyone improperly disposing of their PPE's or engaging in any other behaviors which are in violation of the current Executive Orders issued by Governor Murphy.
