Each year, the official Marlboro Township Recycling Calendar is mailed to every home and posted on the Township website. The official calendar can be identified by its green, white and red cardstock cover, is made from recycled paper, with ‘OFFICIAL’ and ‘DO NOT DISCARD’ printed in red on the cover. In addition to local recycling information, curbside collections and bulk pickup, the calendar provides important emergency contact numbers and websites for local, state and federal agencies. Please post the calendar in your home for reference throughout the year. As a reminder, all curbside pickup is ‘weather permitting’ and changes will be announced via email, social media and on the Town website.
New this year, November and December piled leaf pickup will be announced via email allowing us to account and adjust for weather conditions. We need your cooperation to make this work, so please register your email at https://www.marlboro-nj.gov/register-e-bulletin to ensure that you receive the most up-to-date schedule.
