Free Tire Drop-off Event on Oct. 23 to 27

The tire event will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Post Date:10/19/2023 9:50 AM

HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – Somerset County Commissioner Melonie Marano, recycling liaison, encourages residents and farmers to dispose of any unwanted tires, free-of-charge, from Monday, Oct. 23, through Friday, Oct. 27, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the South County Public Works Garage located at 410 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough, NJ 08844. Up to eight tires per household can be dropped off.

Proper disposal of tires can help protect communities by preventing illness and injury. Scrap tires can collect standing water and attract mosquitoes in warm weather, which may carry the West Nile virus. In the autumn and winter, they present a tripping hazard when covered with leaves or snow.

Tires can also be dropped off during the year at the Somerset County Recycling Center, located at 40 Polhemus Lane in Bridgewater, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., as part of the “First Saturday of the Month” drop-off program. For more information about First Saturday Drop Off events, visit

For more information, contact the Somerset County Road Division at 908-541-5021 or email Residents can also contact the Somerset County Division of Solid Waste at 908-231-7109 or email

The Tire Drop-Off Program is made possible by the Somerset County Division of Solid Waste Management and the Somerset County Road Department. The program is funded through a grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Update of Schafer Litigation      ...Updated 3/9/2022 with Consent Order signed by presiding judge.

In May 2018, a builder’s remedy lawsuit was brought against the Borough regarding the vacant property on Princeton Avenue, commonly known as the Schafer Tract (Block 10, Lot 19).  In a builder’s remedy lawsuit, the plaintiff sues to rezone a property to allow for construction of higher density housing than what current zoning allows, provided that the development includes a set aside of affordable housing units that are designated for low and moderate income. 

The Borough is in the process of concluding the settlement of this litigation.  Mayor and Council, along with our Borough Professionals, have prepared a full update and background information on this matter, which will be fully disseminated to the public during the public hearing scheduled for December 13, 2021.  The rationale for holding a series of special meetings is in the interest of the following:

1.  Concluding the settlement discussions prior to the end of 2021, as directed and recommended by the Court.

2.  Allowing time to properly inform the public on the matter, with details as follows:

a)    To allow adequate time for a public hearing during the second reading of the ordinance, a special meeting was scheduled for December 13.  Council wants to give the public as much time as possible to ask questions and not have the public hearing compressed into a regular business meeting.  We also did not want to hold a public hearing on this topic during our regular December 20 meeting, as it is during a holiday week when the public will be busy.

b)    A special meeting for introduction on November 29 was necessitated based on item (a) above.

c)    A special meeting for Planning Board review is necessitated based on items (a) and (b) above.

The timeline of events is as follows:

November 29, 2021

Special Meeting of the Borough Council:

·         Council passes Resolution 2021-112 authorizing a Settlement Agreement by and between the Borough of Rocky Hill and David K. Schafer.

·         Council introduces Ordinance 2021-15, an affordable housing overlay zoning ordinance that complies with the terms of the Settlement Agreement.

December 2, 2021

Special Meeting of the Borough Planning Board:

·         Planning Board reviews Ordinance 2021-15 for consistency with the Master Plan.

December 13, 2021

Special Meeting of the Borough Council:

·         Second reading of Ordinance 2021-15, including public hearing.

Ordinance was adopted 12/13.

February 7, 2022

Borough Council approved the Settlement Agreement ending Shafer litigation. 

March 8, 2022

Consent order signed by Judge Miller.

Sidewalk work:

Residents can schedule additional sidewalk or apron replacement work

The Borough has contracted with ADS Contractors, LLC to address the sections of the Borough's sidewalk in need of replacement.  This work has been completed.

Residents can contact the contractors directly if they wish to schedule work on sidewalks within a driveway space, on aprons or other work outside the scope of the Borough's damaged sidewalk replacement project..   

The contact information is:

Sidewalk cutting - ongoing additional sidewalk work

The Borough hired Always Safe Sidewalks to cut edges of stable but uneven sidewalk on most of Route 518 in late October.   This work used the reminder of the funds in the 2021 budget for sidewalk work.  Cutting is much less expensive than replacing sidewalk slabs, enabling us to address more areas more quickly and for less money.

Additional sidewalk cutting may be scheduled in 2022 after evaluation of the completed Rt 518 cutting work using potential unspent bond funds or 2022 budget funds.  Council discussion on this matter are ongoing.

The Recycling Pickup May be Delayed

Please note that the recycling pickup for Friday, December 29 may be delayed due to holiday schedules.  If you have put your cans out please leave them by the road.  If they are not taken on Friday then they will be picked sometime over the next week.

I recommend that everyone continue to follow basic public health protection practices of getting vaccinated, isolating or avoiding close contacts with others when sick,

and especially remember to continue to practice the single most effective public health prevention practice of frequent handwashing.

COVID Testing and vaccinations are available at many pharmacies and additional resources are available by contacting the Montgomery Health Dept.

Severe Winter Weather Advisory

With the severe winter weather approaching, Rocky Hill Borough reminds residents to take precautions.

Be sure to winterize outdoor water faucets. Remove any attached hose and shut off the inside water valve to that faucet.

See additional information at:

Be sure to keep an adequate amount of gas in your car.

Be sure to have extra medications on hand and keep them in a water-resistant container.

In the event of a power outage, NEVER use a generator inside homes, garages, crawlspaces, sheds, or similar areas, even when using fans or opening doors and windows for ventilation.

Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are working before a storm.

Know how to report a power outage to your utility company.

Be sure to check on friends and neighbors who have access or functional needs.

Charge your cell phones and try not to use them if the power goes out. Texting uses less power than a phone call, so send text messages to save power if possible.
