New Jersey Clean Communities is a statewide litter-abatement program. It is funded by the Clean Communities Act. The Clean Communities program is a three fold attack on litter. Cleanup; Sponsor public cleanup events and offer mini grant opportunities for civic organizations. Enforcement; enforce anti-litter laws, and Education – sponsor educational programs within the schools and community.
The Clean Communities Program provides mini-grants payable to community non-profit organization who perform cleanups on Township streets and other public properties. The Clean Communities program is part of a statewide strategy to clean and prevent litter on streets, beaches, waterways, parks, recreation sites and vacant lots. As part of this program, Greenwich Township will sponsor Annual Clean-up days each year, one in the spring and one in the fall.
Civic groups, volunteer organizations, churches and scout troops, as well as residents and businesses, are encouraged to participate. Mini-grants are made available to the groups and organizations who participate in our sponsored clean up days or hold their own approved clean up event to clean up our streets and public properties.
