The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for our area Saturday and Saturday night with a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain which could affect travel conditions. The Marlboro Department of Public Works will be pretreating roads from Thursday to Saturday in advance of the winter event.
A reminder that Lt. Cherbini, Acting Coordinator of the Marlboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM), has suspended all brush pickup until further notice; no lawn debris may be curbside. See the OEM letter HERE. The final week of Christmas Tree pickup will continue as scheduled (Christmas Trees placed curbside, free of decoration by 7am on January 16) and recycling collection will continue per zone.) Please see the Township Recycling Calendar HERE for details.
We remind you that power outages should be reported directly to JCP&L using one of their many methods available. You may call JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report your outage, click here to report your outage online or here for text messaging. Outage information is also available on JCP&L’s 24/7 Power Center Maps and on the JCP&L Facebook page. Please immediately report downed wires to JCP&L or the Marlboro Division of Police. Never go near a downed power line, even if you think it is no longer carrying electricity.
As always, the Marlboro Police Department is available 24 hours a day at (732) 536-0100. For emergencies, please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1. We will continue to update the public through email, reverse 9-1-1 and social media, as necessary.
