Volunteers Clean Up Jackson Township Roads Under Clean Communities Grant

A grant from Jackson’s Clean Communities program helped a local organization clear hundreds of trash bags of litter from the city’s roadways this weekend.

New Jersey Clean Communities is a statewide program that promotes volunteer cleanup of public lands.

This week, dozens of local groups hit the highways with trash bags and began cleaning the streets.

Each year, the township hosts these public cleanups and reimburses organizations and community groups $500 per mile of road cleaned. That funding comes from the NJ DEP’s New Jersey Clean Communities grant.

This year, approximately 30 groups, directed by Jackson DPW under Shawn Bolinksy hit the roads and cleaned up over 200 bags of trash. That doesn’t include the tires or wood pallets discarded along the roadside, which were also collected.

Jackson Council President Jennifer Kuhn worked alongside the Jackson Thunder Travel Little League to clean up Grawtown Road.

“This is a great way for the community to pitch in and help keep our roadways clean,” Councilwoman Kuhn said. I want to thank all of the organizations that came out to pitch in today.”

The Clean Communities Program was organized under the administration of Mayor Michael Reina. It was managed previously by Patricia Wood, who grew the program over the years before her passing in 2021
