Dear Resident,

Please note that Town Hall Municipal Offices and the recycling center are closed on Monday, January 16 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  The drop box in the Town Hall vestibule is open 24/7 as are the many on line services and forms on the Township website.  The police are always open and can be reached at 732-536-0100.  For emergencies, dial 911. 

January 9 was National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Please join me in thanking the men and women of the Marlboro Division of Police who serve and protect the residents of Marlboro. We appreciate all they do to keep us safe every day of the year.    


Safety Update – Please remember to lock your car doors, take the key fobs inside, remove garage door openers, lock your doors and set alarms.  If you have not yet done so request an ‘I Took the Pledge’ lawn sign and download the ‘Neighbors’ app.  Most importantly, if you see anything out of place or suspicious call the police at 732-536-0100.  For crimes in progress dial 911.  To read more about how we, as a community, are working together to keep our homes and families safe, click HERE.


The official Marlboro Township Recycling calendar has begun to arrive in mailboxes throughout the Township and should be to you soon.  In the meantime, the calendar is posted on line and linked through social media and HERE. Look for the red and green cover printed on cardstock and the words ‘Official Township Calendar’ in red.  Most recycling questions are addressed in this calendar.  Please keep handy and refer to throughout the year. 

January Christmas Tree and Bagged Leaf Collection – Christmas Tree collection has begun and will continue the weeks of January 9 and 16 for all zones.  Place trees curbside with decorations removed (tinsel may remain) and do not wrap trees in plastic.

Bagged leaf collection will be the week of January 9 for zones 1, 8, 2 & 4 and week of January 16 for zones 3, 5, 6 & 7.

Christmas Trees and leaf bags must be curbside by 7am Monday of the pickup week.  Free leaf bags are available by completing the SDL form HERE and bring the emailed permit with you to DPW Monday to Friday from 7am to 2:30 pm.

Inclement Weather Notice - We remind residents that the winter months bring a greater chance of inclement weather, all curbside collections are weather permitting and are subject to cancellations or rescheduling by the Marlboro Office of Emergency Management.  Notice will be made via email and social media. For that reason, items may not be placed curbside more than once week prior to your scheduled pickup week.  We thank you for your cooperation.
