Garage Sales

Borough Ordinance 258 requires a permit which is issued by the Office of the Borough Clerk.  The permit is good for no more than three successive days and no household may obtain more than two permits in any year.  The sale may take place from 9:00 a.m. until sundown.  Signs may be placed on private property advertising the sale the day before or day of the sale.  I remain available to answer your questions.  I can be reached by email at or by phone at (973) 427-1167.  

At this time, safe social distancing measures must continue to be followed.  For gatherings of less than 25 people, face masks are strongly recommended and should be worn by those holding the sale and those visiting.  There should be frequent washing or wiping of surfaces and hands.  Where possible, maintaining a six-foot distance is also strongly suggested.  Contact should be limited to nothing more than the point of sale and exchange of money.  We in Hawthorne have done an outstanding job in combating this Pandemic.  We need to continue to be smart in our choices and aware of those around us.
