Weekend Update

Dear Resident,

This Saturday, April 9 we welcome back our ‘Scrambled EggStravaganza’.  Please join us on the Municipal Turf Field from noon to 2pm to enjoy a petting zoo, inflatables, special photo ops and an egg hunt for children up to age 13.  This is a free event for Marlboro residents and no registration is needed.  Please see below for details. 

I want to thank residents for heeding our ‘See Something. Say Something. We will Do Something.’ initiative and sharing with your neighbors the importance of locking car doors, keeping valuables out of sight, and removing the key fob. This, along with increased police patrols and SWIFT 911 reminder texts has reduced the number of stolen vehicles in Marlboro.  Together, we will keep Marlboro safe. 

If you are not receiving texts from the Police SWIFT 911 portal please visit https://marlboro-nj.gov/swift911  . “Keeping Marlboro Safe” letter (linked HERE).  


Bulk Collection/Spring Cleanup – This annual collection beings at the end of April by zone. We ask residents to be a good neighbor and not place items curbside until after Easter/Passover weekend so that the streets are clean and safe and residents have places for their guests to park. The schedule, regulations and more can be found in the recycling calendar HERE.  Please look for a detailed email next week.

Recycling Center – Bagged leaf collection will be completed this week, but we remind residents that the recycling center is open year round Mondays and Wednesday from 8am to 1:30pm and Saturdays 8am to 4pm. Schedule adjustments due to holidays are noted on the calendar.  Lawn debris, recycling, and electronics may be brought to the Recycling Center; no permit or fee.  Bulk items require a free permit available on line HERE.

Pothole Portal – The portal is on the home page of the website ‘Quick Links & Actions’ and HERE. Only one Marlboro SDL account is needed for all on-line services.  This efficient method of reporting allows our residents who drive our streets every day to direct resources where they are needed.  


In addition to the Scrambled EGGStravaganza, spring programs are underway.  The Marlboro Swim Club will open at the end of May and membership is happening now. 

Scrambled EGGSstravaganza – Saturday, April 9 from noon- 2 please join us on the Municipal Turf field for inflatables, petting zoo, special guests and an egg hunt for ages up to 13.  The turf field will be divided into age groups to allow everyone to hunt eggs safely.  This event is free to Marlboro residents and no registration is needed.  FLYER
