BELMAR, NJ — Brush and leaves will be picked up at curbside throughout Belmar today, April 6.

Residents are reminded to put leaf and brush piles at least 10 feet away from any catch basin to help keep storm sewers clear of debris and stormwater clean. The debris must be out at the curb no later than 7 a.m.

Brush includes limbs, branches (diameter of 6 inches or less and cut into 4-feet sections), sticks, twigs and some types of shrub trimmings.

Leaves must be raked to the curb and kept separate from the brush. Bagged leaves will not be picked up.

The borough’s recycling center located at 16th Avenue and West Railroad Avenue is closed until further notice, so it cannot accept brush at it has in the past.

Belmar Public Works Department offers brush and leaf collection on a scheduled basis throughout the year — on the first Monday of every month from April through November. The remaining dates are May 4, June 1, July 6, August 3, September 8 (a Tuesday pickup due to Labor Day), October 5 and November 2.
