IMPORTANT RECYCLING INFORMATION

Plastic bags of any type are no longer allowed in with recycling materials.   This applies to both curbside pickup and drop off at the Public Works yard.  Recycling materials are to be placed loose in all recycling containers or dumpsters.  Plastic bags cause delays and jams of the sorting machines during processing.  If plastic bags are found in any recycling load taken to the County site for disposal,  the entire recycling load will be rejected at significant cost to the Borough.

If plastic bags continue to appear in the dumpsters at the Public Works yard the Borough may be forced to close the recycling area Monday thru Friday, leaving only Saturday hours available, along with your regularly scheduled curbside pickup.

Everyone’s cooperation is sincerely appreciated.

If you have any questions please call Borough Hall at 732-842-2400.

Phone Scam Warning (pdf)
The Little Silver Police Department has received numerous complaints regarding an aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, which has been making the rounds throughout the country.

They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.
Do not give any information to unsolicited phone callers at any time. Please click below for more information.
