The remnants of Hurricane Ida dumped more than nine inches of rain on Bayonne on the night of Sept. 1, causing numerous massive flooding across the city. Bayonne emergency services received over 500 calls for service during the storm.

Storm water flooded the streets, which are still littered with cars abandoned during the rainfall, as well as the basements of many homes.

Property owners have to dispose of water-damaged refuse throughout the city. Mayor James Davis has announced two ways in which the city has arranged to help residents.

Working with the Bayonne Department of Public Works, A&L Disposal has set up Dumpsters in various hard-hit parts of the community.

Dumpsters for debris

Dumpsters have been placed or will be placed on 1st Street just east of Kennedy Blvd.; Cottage Street and Hobart Avenue; 10th Street and Avenue A; at 14th Street and Avenue E; 22nd Street and Avenue F; 27th Street and Avenue E; near 33rd Street and Avenue A; 34th Street and Avenue E; 45th Street and Avenue C; and Sycamore Road and Colonial Drive.

The city may add more Dumpsters at other locations. The city has advised residents to not use these Dumpsters for regular household garbage, only for storm-damaged items.

Curbside pickups

On Sept. 4, A&L Disposal will send trucks for curbside pickups of storm-damaged items. For curbside for pickup, call the Department of Public Works at 201-858-6131 by 3 p.m. on Friday, September 3.

Public Works will share that list with A&L. Due to the expected demand, it may take the company a while to get to each property.
