Weekend Update

Dear Resident, 

The Marlboro Farmers Market opens this Sunday from 9am to 2pm.  Located on Route 520 just west of Route 79 and across from the WaWa, the Marlboro Farmers Market is set on 56 acres of Township preserved land that was once the Stattel Farm.  Parking is on site behind the market with handicapped parking available at street level.  More about the Market can be found on the website HERE and on Facebook and Instagram as well as in my letter that will be emailed tomorrow. 

I am also excited to announce that Mayor Hornik’s Charity Softball Tournament is back and will be held Saturday at the Union Hill ballfields.  Tournament games are played all day, but the championships begin at about 3pm. All are welcome to come and cheer on the teams. 


Curbside Lawn Debris and Bulk Pickup Collection COMPLETE – As noted in the Township calendar, our summer road program begins and curbside collection of leaves, brush and bulk is complete. No debris may be curbside until lawn debris collection resumes in late September.  Leaves and brush may be brought to the recycling center throughout the year free of charge or taken by a private contractor. Bulk items can be dropped off at the recycling center with a free permit available on-line HERE.   Please review the Recycling Calendar for details. 

Landscaper Registration - A reminder that all landscapers who do work for hire in Marlboro Township must register using our on-line portal on the Township website.  This free registration must be complete no later than September 1, 2021.  The registration portal can be accessed by visiting our website at www.marlboro-nj.gov and click the ‘Landscaper Registration’ under Quick Links and Actions or the ‘I need to Learn about…’ drop down box.  The landscaper registers their business on the portal one time on the portal and then enters EACH address they service.  We ask for your help ensuring that your landscaper is aware of this requirement.


Marlboro Day Vendors/Sponsors – A reminder that sponsorships and vendor applications are open now for Marlboro Day to be held on September 12.  If your business would like to be a sponsor or a vendor and introduce your brand to thousands of residents in Marlboro and nearby communities, please click HERE for more.  Vendor spaces fill quickly, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
