Monmouth County has scheduled nine 2015 Paper Shredding events in local communities so that Monmouth County residents have opportunities to get rid of old documents and confidential files safely.

All shredding events will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. as follows:

Saturday, May 16 – Red Bank, 90 Monmouth St.
Saturday, June 20 – Upper Freehold Municipal Building, 314 Route 539

Saturday, Nov. 7 – Matawan, 54 Middlesex Rd.
Saturday, Dec. 5 – Holmdel Department of Public Works, 14 Crawfords Corner Rd.

“We are happy to offer these events for responsible paper disposal which will help residents reduce the risk of identity theft,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso. “The County continues to be proactive in removing recyclables from our waste stream and we encourage residents to do their part by making use of these events and all other county services for proper waste disposal.”

County residents may bring up to 100 lbs. to be shredded. The shredding event will stop once the shredding trucks full. All papers will be shredded on location in the mobile truck. Documents should be free of large binder clips; staples and paper clips may be left on documents.

This is a project of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders and 2015 partner municipalities of Atlantic Highlands, Colts Neck, Holmdel, Long Branch, Manasquan, Marlboro, Matawan, Red Bank and Upper Freehold.

2014 Spring/Fall Hydrant Flushing Program

The Spring Hydrant Flushing program will begin on the First Monday of April at 10:00 pm and is scheduled to take five weeks to complete.

The Fall Hydrant Flushing program will begin on the First Monday of October at 10:00 pm and is scheduled to take five weeks to complete.

Semi-annually our staff opens fire hydrant valves to allow water to flow through the pipes. Systematically opening the hydrants enhances water quality by flushing sediment from the main line pipesverifies the proper operation of hydrants and valves, and ensures that the hydrant is operational in case of a fire emer­ gency.

If you see discolored water, shut off the tap and wait several minutes. Then check the clarity by running cold water for a few minutes, allowing new water to work its way into your pipes. Avoid washing laundry until water runs clear at the tap.
