Branch Collection Reminder

Just a reminder to residents that you do not need to call in your branch pick up. The Public Works Department canvases the town and collects any branches that are out. This time of year, it takes an average of two to three weeks to canvas the entire town.

We are currently in the Avenues section of town after beginning the day in the Reeder Tract/Swamppoodle section of town. If you have any questions or concerns regarding branch collection, or would like to know what section of town we are in, please reach out to Meghan Jack at mjack@riversidetwp.org

2019 Riverside School District Alumnus of the Year Award Presented to Louis J. Fisher, Jr.


2019 Riverside School District
Alumnus of the Year Award
Presented to
Louis J. Fisher, Jr.
Class of 1981
A 1981 graduate of Riverside High School, Lou Fisher was a member of the playoff-bound football team, as well as the wrestling and track teams, and the DECA Club that ran the school store.  Following graduation, he went to work for his father in the commercial dry-cleaning and laundry business, first as a supervisor for the company that serviced the Atlantic City casinos. In 1985 he left to become a general manager of a family-owned dry-cleaning company, helping them grow from three to 13 locations in less than five years.  In 1990 he started his own dry-cleaning business with no capital but the help of his retired father.  In just two years Marathon Cleaners in Mt. Ephraim would employ over 75 and have annual sales over 2 million dollars.  He also added locations in Riverside, Medford, Westmont, and Delran.  Deciding on a career change, in 1998 he sold the last of his locations and joined the Riverside Police Department.  While on patrol he focused predominantly on narcotics, DWI, and other criminal activity.  He was awarded numerous citations, including M.A.D.D. recognition.  Then-PTL Fisher was promoted to Detective in 2004 and then to Lieutenant in 2005.  His current duties consist of detective services, gang intelligence, narcotics, grant writing, and administration.  In 2007 Lieutenant Fisher was named Riverside Police Officer of the Year, and he received the Exceptional Duty Award for his work as an instructor at the Police Academy and for investigative accomplishments.  Lieutenant Fisher has earned several commendations for exemplary performance relating to cases involving gangs, illegal drug distribution, weapon possession, and successful grant projects.  In 2014 he was among the first to recognize the oncoming opioid epidemic. As founder and CEO of the nonprofit New Jersey Treatment Incentive Program (NJTIP), he has helped identify and direct addicted individuals who commit nonviolent offenses into long-term treatment in lieu of incarceration. Since the program’s inception, Lieutenant Fisher has helped hundreds get into treatment, thereby reducing theft-related crime by more than 80 per cent in Riverside. NJTIP is directly responsible for making Riverside one of the safest communities in Burlington County, as reported by the NJ State Police uniform crime report.  He has also completed 22 marathons, including the Boston Marathon twice.
