Snow Removal Requirements

Plainsboro residents are required to maintain their sidewalks in accordance with Chapter 79 of the Township Code. Snow and ice removal requirements are as follows:
  • All property owners or agents of apartment complexes must clear all sidewalks, private streets and parking lots of snow and ice within 24 hours after the end of the snowfall.
  • No one should throw or place snow or ice on any public street within the township.
  • If, in the interest of public safety, the township must intervene to remove snow or ice from sidewalks, private streets or parking lots, then the property owner or complex owner will be charged for the cost of such removal.
Homeowners not following the above can be subject to fines as set forth in the ordinance.
