The Toms River Township Department of Public Works and the Recycling Convenience Center will be closed on July 4th in observance of Independence Day. Recycling and garbage collections will be postponed one day with Friday’s garbage collected on Saturday, July 8th. However, the beach area recycling will be picked up on Friday as usual. Extra recycling collection requests that are normally collected on Fridays are cancelled this week only due to the holiday.
For additional information, please refer to our website at tomsrivertownship.com.
The Township has just learned that the first hopper dredge is scheduled to arrive Sunday morning. Sand import will begin shortly thereafter. However, contrary to what the contractor originally proposed; the project will start working toward the south first, so that there will be more working room to transport equipment to and from the staging area near the Seaside border.
The closure of the beach will still be limited to 1,000 feet at a time, and sand ramps will be provided over the pipe where it crosses the open beach areas. The only change is the order in which the project will progress.
We are now in the 30 day countdown to June 24th—our 250 year anniversary! These items are available for sale in the Clerk’s Office.
