Grab Gloves And Brooms To Help Keep Morristown Clean This Spring
pring cleaning might not sound like fun, but when it’s outdoors and tackled with friends and family, it’s a party! Morristown Clean Communities invites all members of the community to participate in the annual Town Wide Spring Clean-up on Sat., April 23. The action begins at 9 a.m. behind the Morristown Municipal Building, with registration and breakfast treats. Enter from Franklin Street and park in the lot.

That’s also when volunteers will receive their morning-only work assignments. Clean-up sites include parks, playgrounds, lots and roadways, as well as the sprucing up of public benches and trash cans. Everyone can participate in the clean-up; there are no age limits!

Volunteers should dress for work detail and, if possible, bring their own work gloves, rakes, shovels and brooms. Bags for garbage and recycling and will be provided. Work assignments will be completed by 11:30 a.m.

Co-sponsored by the Town of Morristown Clean Communities Program and Morristown Beautiful, Inc., volunteers have been demonstrating their community pride by joining the annual Morristown Clean-up for more than 25 years. Many families, individuals, members of churches and temples, civic and school groups, including Scout troops have made the clean-up an annual tradition, as they comb much loved town locations to collect and dispose of trash that has accumulated over the winter. Many of these groups request specific areas they would like to target and have come up with additional projects to help beautify the town and make Morristown even more inviting.

Any group wishing to request a particular site assignment can do so in advance by contacting Kathleen O’Neill Margiotta, Morristown Clean-up coordinator, at 973-644-4363 or by e-mailing

Advanced registration is not required. The “heavy rain date” is Sun., April 24.
