South River Holiday Garbage & Recycling Schedule View Details

Posted December 11, 2018


South River residents may experience some unpleasant odors during the month of December as a result of improvements to the gas collection system at the Middlesex County Landfill and unfavorable weather conditions. The Borough of South River has communicated its concern to the Middlesex County Utilities Authority (MCUA), which operates the Landfill and is coordinating the planned capital improvements. The MCUA anticipates that the improvements will result in fewer odor concerns in the future.
The Borough of South River and the MCUA appreciate our neighbors' patience, understanding, and cooperation during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause. We will continue to monitor this situation until it is resolved. Residents with odor concerns may contact the MCUA at any time at 732-588-1051.

We've been working to try to improve the content available on our website as we make strides to improve borough internet technologies. The homepage is designed to highlight new updates and point you to these new areas. All other areas should offer information and resources and we've tasked many of the departments in the borough to provide more information to residents. We're in the process of updating the DPW page, Building Department page, Police page, Department of Parks & Recreation page, Administration page, and many others. As we continue to build out information available on our website, we are looking to provide additional modern features we hope to implement later this year such as a more robust calendar and other user-specific pages. Additionally, we now provide a form to make website update requests to assist commissions, departments, and others to request changes. This will eventually be converted into a digital form like others in our new FILEā€¢it service.

The Communication Committee is proud to share their new guide for welcoming community organizations to submit to the Monthly Buzz and other mediums.
