Two weeks ago, the Monmouth County Reclamation Center advised ALL Municipalities that any recycling loads that are dropped off by towns which are found to have plastic bags of any sort inside will be rejected at a significant cost to each Municipality. Effective immediately, the West Long Branch Public Works crews that are performing curbside pick-ups will now refuse to pick up any recycling containers with plastic bags inside.  All recyclable items have to be placed loosely in proper containers. Any recycling items found being placed at curb side in plastic bags will not be picked up by Public Works crew. Also, if plastic bags continue to be found in the dumpsters at the Public Works drop off site, the borough may be forced to close the recycling drop off site Monday through Friday, leaving drop offs only permitted Saturday and Sunday. Lastly, Cardboard boxes must be broken down when dropped at boroughs recycling yard. WLB DPW RECYCLING CENTER HOURS OF OPERATION: Monday through Friday 7:00AM until 3:30PM, Saturday 8:00AM -1:00PM & Sunday 8:00AM -12:00PM. ALL residents must comply with these new regulations. Thank you.
