Operation Safe Summer: Township Police to issue ice cream “tickets” in order to promote bike helmet safety

Every year, individuals are killed or seriously injured while riding their bicycles. According to the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety, head injury is the most serious injury and most common cause of death among bicyclists.

In New Jersey, anyone under the age of 17 is required to wear an approved helmet when cycling, roller-skating or skateboarding. Injuries can happen anywhere, including parks, bike paths and driveways so anyone and everyone riding a bicycle should wear a helmet.

In order to promote safe riding, the Bordentown Township Police Department has partnered with the Bordentown Creamery and officers will issue “tickets” to children observed wearing their helmets while riding bicycles, scooters, skateboards, etc... These tickets can be redeemed for a small water ice or small soft serve ice cream from the Bordentown Creamery.


This program will kick off on Memorial Day weekend and run until the end of the summer season.

Acting Chief Brian Pesce remarked, “We hope to encourage kids to wear helmets in order to prevent traumatic brain injuries and also feel that this is a great way for local youth to interact with our officers in a positive way.”}

Contact DEP For Odor Complaints

Residents of Bordentown Township who experience landfill and/or industrial odors in their neighborhood should contact the NJDEP hotline by calling 1-877-927-6337 to report the odors.

If you suspect the odors are coming from the nearby landfills in Pennsylvania, please be sure to also report the odors to the Pennsylvania DEP by calling 1-484-250-5991 during normal business hours or by calling 1-484-250-5900 after hours and weekends.  Residents can also submit an online report to the PADEP by clicking this link:


Reporting odors to the NJDEP and PADEP will help the township with documenting the incidents to the authorities that can lend assistance to resolve the problems. Calling the hotline numbers is very important because it will force corrective action.

In addition to reporting the odors to the two state agencies listed above, residents may also wish to consider reporting a landfill odor to Waste Management directly by calling 609-499-0500.  This number is direct to Waste Management.  By calling this line, your complaint should initiate a quicker response from their staff in order to investigate and correct whatever situation may be causing the odors.
