  MANALAPAN LEAF RECYCLING   All leaves must be placed in biodegradable compost bags. These bags can be purchased at the Public Works Department on Mondays – Fridays from  9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  The bags are sold in bundles of 5 for a cost of $2.00.  You can also purchase these bags from local retailers. NO leaves will be collected that are not in these biodegradable bags. Bagged leaves containing twigs, grass, brush, weeds or other debris will not be collected. The Spring Leaf collection will take place during the weeks of April 18 and May 2. Please place bagged leaves at the curb, not in the street, on the first day of each scheduled collection to insure you will not miss any of the collections. Leaves in biodegradable bags can be brought to the Public Works yard throughout the year.

Fall is here and it’s time to clean up our properties for the winter. The leaves will start falling soon and the raking will begin.

In an effort to increase recycling in the township, the Manalapan Environmental Commission has produced a television program for the local cable channel that is intended to teach Manalapan residents about what they can recycle curbside and to show them how easy it is to recycle. According to a press release from the township, Manalapan could reap significant savings on the cost of managing its trash if residents increase their recycling rates because the town pays by weight to dump its trash at the county landfill and on the whole residents are throwing out many recyclable items. At the beginning of 2010, Manalapan converted its recycling program to single-stream recycling which means that residents can now place all of their recyclables in one container for curbside pickup. In the 30 ...

According to the Manalapan Township Committee, as reported in last week's News Transcript, Manalapan’s total tax rate (all taxing entities accounted for) in 2010 will be $2.03 per $100 of assessed valuation.Simply put, divide your NEW assessed value by 100 (on the green card you received in January) and multiply by $2.03 to receive a pretty close indication of your proposed taxes. For example, if your assessed value is 425,000, you multiply 4250 by 2.03 and find your taxes for 2010 would be... $8,627.50. Hopefully you will find the difference from 2009 to 2010 to be equivalent to the normal year to year change.If you don't have your green card, drop me a note and I will look up your assessed value in the tax records.- JoAnna SiminerioNews Transcript Article on Manalapan Township Propos...

It isn't just what you know, and it isn't just who you know.It's actually who you know, who knows you, and what you do for a living. (Bob Burg) Loving that quote!!  Go back and read it again, because it look me a minute to get it right, but boy oh boy is it right on! I remember when I first started in this business, I didn't have a conversation without somehow introducing that I was a real estate agent.  I'd tell the guy at the dry cleaner that I got that stain from the chinese food at my broker's open for my wonderful new listing!  Or I'd tell the gal at the Starbuck's counter that I needed the "Double Grande Latte" because I had to wake up after showing my 42 homes to my buyer that morning! I was networking, although not in the proactive sense.  I was fishing where the fish weren't h...

Manalapan Day was a blast right from the start!! (See my original post about the event:  Manalapan Under the Stars). The weather threatened but in the end the sun won!!  It might have been a little warm at times, but we'll take it as opposed to the wash-out the event was last year!!!         For myself, Gail and the rest of the Weichert Team, the fun started long before the official event!  Overcoming the hostile wind and setting up our tent was challenging!!  We heaved and we ho'd and we finally got it up and secured!  It seemed each one of us were able to contribute something to get the job done.  Yeah Team!! Unfortunately some of the other vendors weren't quite so lucky!!  Tents were rolling, signs were falling, folks were scurrying!  Thankfully, the wind calmed down in time for kick...

Although I do not live anywhere near the oil rig that exploded off Louisiana, and Mississippi (and other states near there), I was watching this unfold on television.  It is a tragedy of huge proportions.  First there was the death of the workers on that rig.  And, now the oil is leaking out of control.  I get the feeling that BP Petroleum and our government really does not know how to fix this problem.  The birds are already showing up covered in oil.  The environment is totally at risk there and so are many people's livelihoods.  There may also be an impact on shipping in that area.  I am hearing that in my neck of the woods, restaurants are expecting shortages of certain fish products.  The list goes on and on.  Here in NJ, they were recently talking about putting up oil rigs off the...
