Pickup of bulk flood and storm-related vegetative debris due to around the Borough ends December 3.

To safeguard resident’s health and safety following the damaging storm on October 29th, contractors have been assisting the massive effort by the Borough of Oceanport to remove the record amount of vegetative debris. The contractor’s have also been removing the unprecedented amount of large, bulk debris left in the flood zone, including material such as appliances, furniture and other household goods destroyed in the flood. One month later, the clean up nears completion.

Please be advised that Oceanport will end pick up of bulk flood debris, and storm-related vegetative debris throughout the borough including material such as furniture and other household goods destroyed in the flood, on Monday, December 3rd at 4:30 p.m. Residents are encouraged to complete their clean up and place items at the curb during this weekend in time for the final pick up.

The Garbage contractor has resumed bulk pickup so furniture and carpeting can be placed at the curb with regular household waste on the second pickup of the week. Construction and demolition debris will not be picked up by the Garbage contractor. Dumpsters should be used for this material moving forward. Public Works will resume its regular leaf pick up, and will continue after December 3rd to pick up vegetative debris and limbs when placed at the curb in conformance with normal regulations.

The Borough of Oceanport thanks residents for their support of these efforts, and for working with the borough to complete this unprecedented clean up during a very difficult month.
