Council Targets 350 Clean-Ups; Ends Year at 760
TRENTON – January 13, 2015 – It was a banner year in the number of clean-ups for the New Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC), which reports 760 projects across the state that removed 1,930 tons of debris from waterways, beaches, greenways and roads.
NJCCC Executive Director Sandy Huber said the council had established an aggressive goal at the beginning of 2014 to coordinate 350 clean-ups, to celebrate the 350th birthday of the State of New Jersey. Through aggressive outreach to county coordinators and local volunteer groups, the number of coordinated clean-ups surpassed anyone’s expectation, with various organizations across the state helping the NJCCC tally up 760 cleanups.
