With the arrival of nice spring weather this weekend, we noticed that a lot of residents did yard work and put brush out for pick up. While the next scheduled brush pick up is not until Monday, May 7th; we will have DPW do a special spring brush pick up tomorrow, Tuesday, April 24th. Moving forward, please be mindful that brush pick-up is the first Monday of every month. Visit to review the schedules for brush, bulk and regular garbage and recycling collection.

Each Spring, the Borough of Belmar transfers from the American Water system, back to water drawn from our own wells. As part of this transfer, the Department of Public Works will be conducting a comprehensive flushing of the water system over the next several days, starting this Monday night, April 16th. Flushing will occur between the hours of 8pm and 4am so as to minimize impact to your home. You can expect to see a temporary discoloration of the water and/or a decrease of pressure when the flushing is occurring. We recommend that you avoid running your tap water, using the washing machine or dishwasher during the hours of 8pm to 4am. If you do experience any discoloration please run cold water through your taps until it runs clear. As always, we thank you for your cooperation and patience. Please contact Belmar DPW with any questions you may have at 732-681-0452.
