PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

RECYCLE CENTER NOW ACCEPTS COOKING OIL & COOKING GREASE

Plumsted Township residents can now recycling cooking oil & cooking grease at the Recycling Center located at 2 Cedar Street.  Everyday cooking oil & grease should not be deposited down the drain, as this will eventually clog the septic system and foul the environment.  Keeping this material out of the trash also ensures a cleaner environment.  Oil from deep fryers and turkey fryers can now be taken to the Recycle Center.  The center is open on Wednesday from 1-5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.  Other recyclables accepted at the center are electronics, motor oil, auto batteries, rechargeable batteries, white goods and all metals.

 


Township Leaf & Branch Compost Site Moving

New Egypt, NJ   The Plumsted Township Leaf & Branch Compost Site is scheduled to move to a new location in 2013.  According to township officials, effective January 5, 2013, township residents can deposit leaves, branches and brush at the new site located at EME, Inc.,  849 Route 539 South in New Egypt.  The new hours of operation will be Saturdays from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.  The holiday open & closing schedule, along with any changes, will be announced on the township website at www.plumsted.org.  

 

      This township service will continue to operate as in the past,  said Mike Wysong, Plumsted Township Committeeman and Recycling Coordinator.   There are no residential charges or fees associated with the use of this site, and free mulch will continue to be available for residents.   According to Wysong, this move will amount to an estimated annual savings of $3,500.   The Township Committee continues to seek ways to save critical taxpayer resources during these challenging economic times,  stated Wysong.

 

     The last day of operation at the present site on Magnolia Road, across from the Police Department, will be Saturday, December 15, 2012, as the last two Saturdays of the month are holiday closure dates.

45th FARM PRESERVED IN PLUMSTED

The Krowicki Farm Market and Peach Farm, 862 Rt. 539 in New Egypt, has become the 45th Farm to be permanently preserved from future development in Plumsted Township. More than 3,000 acres of farmland, woodland and open space have been saved from development in Plumsted to preserve its' rural character with the financial assistance from land preservation programs at the State, County and most recently, the Federal Government Department of Defense in funding partnerships.
