MIDDLETOWN, NJ - The following information has been provided to Middletown Township by New Jersey American Water.
New Jersey American Water continues to experience a slow, but steady recovery of its treatment and distribution system in Monmouth County. Residents seem to be following the conservation messages that were communicated by you, the water company, and the Governor. Overnight, we did not experience the normal irrigation demands that we usually have this time of year. This decrease in demand had the positive result of allowing us to pump water into our water storage tanks. Having water in these tanks is a very positive step toward normalizing pressure and ensuring a supply of water is available for essential water needs.
Today, we will continue to install temporary pipe that will allow us to increase the outflow of treated water from the plant. These short term solutions will allow us to continue to serve your town water for essential uses, but will not allow us the capacity to supply water for non essential use. We will also be taking water quality samples and working with the DEP to determine when the boil water advisory can be lifted.
Finally, our bottled water supplier ran into some issues this morning that prevented them from getting water to our three stations by 8am. We expect all stations to have a supply of water by 10:30 this morning. These stations will be open until 10:00pm tonight.
Thank you for your cooperation while we work to restore normal service to your town.

Middletown residents will be freed from sorting recyclables this Independence Day as the township transitions to single stream curbside recycling.
MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Starting Monday, July 2nd the practice of collecting glass, plastic and metal containers in one pick-up, then newspapers and cardboard in another pick-up several weeks apart will come to an end. All permitted recyclable materials can be put into the same containers. Recycling will still be collected twice a month, but residents can put all their recyclables out each time, Mayor Anthony Fiore announced.
The switch to single stream recycling is part of new garbage and recycling collection contracts with Republic Service/Marpal Disposal and Future Sanitation. The five-year contracts will save the township nearly $500,000 compared to the previous contracts, the mayor said.
“It’s a real win-win situation. Under the new contract the township will be able to reduce costs and increase services,” the mayor said. “In addition to the convenience and environmental factors, single stream recycling will make the collection process more efficient, cut costs and generate new revenues.”
With single stream recycling, ALL cans, plastic containers, bottles, jars, cardboard, newspapers, office papers & mixed papers (junk mail, magazines, coupon inserts) can be placed into the SAME containers. There is NO change to the collection schedule. All recyclables will be collected twice a month based on the existing schedule by zone, said Public Works and Engineering Director Ted Maloney. He noted the maximum weight per container is 50 pounds. Read more

ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Next week, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at Atlantic Highlands Elementary School, the Community Vacation Bible School will be held. Children ages 3 (potty-trained) to 12 are invited to come. Registration is $30 per children and it is open to all the children of this community and the surrounding areas. This year’s theme for the Vacation Bible School is Sky – Everything is Possible with God!
Why should children attend this year’s Vacation Bible School?
1. The materials for the Vacation Bible School are excellent. As a Christian educator, I find that some of the gifted Christian writers are involved in the production of the Vacation Bible School materials. The publishers have gifted writers and artists and they test these materials years in advance to make sure that they are attractive to the children.
2. This is a united effort of all the churches in the area. The Vacation Bible School is exactly what it says – it is a community effort. It is the effort of the area churches who recruit people to work in crafts, kitchen, drama, games, teaching, leadership, and administration.
3. Even if your child does not attend a Sunday School class or a religious class during the week or on week-ends, for the sake of your child’s well-rounded education, you should encourage him/her to attend. 15 hours in one week will do marvelous things and expand their minds.
Registration has gone on for a couple of months, but there are still some spots if you show up at Atlantic Highlands Elementary School next Monday, June 25, 2012 at 9:00 AM.
