JERSEY CITY, N.J. — The Hudson County Improvement Authority is cancelling all of the agency’s events scheduled for spring amid the spread of COVID-19. These events include mobile shredding days, hazardous household waste collections, and rain barrel and compost bin sales.
“The Hudson County Improvement Authority has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic across the country,” said Hudson County Improvement Authority CEO Norman Guerra. “In an effort to comply with the CDC’s recommendation to prevent a further spread, the HCIA is making the proactive decision to cancel all of our events scheduled for this spring. This is a decision we do not make lightly, but our primary concern is the health and safety of residents.”
“Cancelling any event that benefits our community is always a tough decision,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise. “While I am saddened we will be unable to bring these environmental service days to some of our towns this spring, it is imperative we do everything within our power to help prevent the further spread of COVID-19.”
