Dear Resident:

Due to the January weather and for the safety of our residents, the Marlboro Office of Emergency Management cancelled January brush pickup. After a review of the long term weather forecast, DPW will begin a BRUSH ONLY collection during February, currently noted in the Recycling Calendar as ‘Scheduled Weather Permitting’. 

The zone by zone February Brush Pickup pick up dates (one date per zone) is as noted below and on the printable revised February Schedule HERE.

February 5

Zones 6 & 7

February 12

Zones 1 & 8

February 19

Zones 2 & 4

February 26

Zones 3 & 5

Please note that there is no leaf pick up at this time and there should be no leaves curbside.  Brush and leaves may NOT be commingled.   Brush will be picked up only on the above dates.  If you miss your zone’s scheduled pickup see below for recycling center guidelines or you may arrange for a private contractor. 
Brush is to be placed curbside by 7:00 am on the first day of the scheduled pickup week free of leaves or other debris. Weather permitting; it generally takes approximately one week to complete each zone. Once a street has been completed, the DPW will not return to that street. For the safety of pedestrians and motorists, brush should not be placed at the curb earlier than one week prior to the first scheduled collection date.

All brush is to be cut to a maximum length of six (6) feet and a maximum diameter of four (4) inches and should not exceed fifty (50) pounds in weight. Branches less than one inch in diameter shall be tied in neat bundles no more than four (4) feet in length and two (2) feet across.

Brush commingled with leaves, grass, rocks, stumps, construction debris, fence posts, etc., trash or recyclables will not be collected. Landscapers or residents placing debris for collection in an unauthorized manner shall be required to remove the waste from the public right of way.

We remind you that Brush (and leaves) are accepted at the Township Recycling Center throughout the year, free of charge. The hours of the Recycling Center are Monday and Wednesday 8:00-1:30 and Saturday 8:00-4:00.  Other items that may be dropped off at the Recycling Center are:

  • Electronics (TVs, computers, etc.)  - No charge. No permit required.
  • Bulk Items - Free bulk Permit required and are available at the Recycling office Monday to Friday 7:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Proof of residency is required. 

Recycling Guidelines are available on page 10 of the recycling calendar mailed to your home or online HERE. You may also obtain recycling information by calling 732 536-0188 or by sending an email to publicworks@marlboro-nj.gov.

Finally, we remind you that all pickups are weather permitting and changes to the schedule will be sent via Township email, social media and the website.  Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep Marlboro streets safe and clean.

Robert Miller, Superintendent of Public Works
