April 28, 2020 Letter

The April 28 letter from the mayor with town news and COVID-19 information can be found here. Among other things, it notifies everyone of a 'Light the Night' celebration to recognize and support our first responders and front line workers. Also, in keeping with the fast-moving nature of news surrounding the pandemic, since the letter was written, Sandy Hook has announced it will soon reopen at 50 percent, and state parks have now been reopened as well. Little Silver's parks, fields and trails have always been open, and we've now reopened our recycling center during the week from 8 to 2, and are planning to reopen our tennis courts. It will be a challenge with the beautiful forecast, but please continue to obey the governor's executive orders. Be well.

RECYCLING YARD OPENING MONDAY, MAY 4TH.

We are pleased to advise that our hard-working but short-staffed public works department will reopen the Recycling Yard on Monday, May 4. Its hours will be Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Residents must wear cloth facial coverings and comply with social distancing and all other aspects of the governor's orders at all times. Non-compliance that puts anyone's safety in jeopardy may result in the closing of the yard.

We understand that circumstances have left everyone with an increased recycling burden, but please use the yard only as a back-up to your regular curbside pickup, which continues as usual, per the regular schedule posted on www.littlesilver.org. Thanks to our DPW, administration, and emergency management office for getting this service up and running again!

The funds for these programs have been placed in reserve to allow for sufficient cash reserves to meet emergency obligations due to the COVID-19 health crisis.  No date has been given on when these credits/payments will resume.

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. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. 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.
