Roxbury Clean Communities has a simple and fun way to be a part of the community. It is looking for individuals, school groups, churches, or businesses willing to donate some time to continue to keep Roxbury beautiful by participating in Adopt-A-Road and Adopt-A-Spot programs.
The Clean Communities program is a comprehensive litter abatement program serving New Jersey residents and visitors for more than 25 years. The basic mission is to reduce litter in public places, promote the volunteer cleanup of public lands and sustain a reduction in litter through education.
With the Adopt-a-Road program, pledge to adopt a public roadway in the township and make at least two clean ups each year. Clean Communities will supply the gloves, bags, vests and Litter Patrol signs as needed.
With Adopt-a-Spot, pledge to adopt a public spot, such as an area in a park and make at least two clean ups and/or beautifications each year. Clean Communities will supply the bags and gloves as needed.
The Township will collect the bagged litter once the clean-up is complete.
Teens are encouraged to get a group together and fulfill some hours for community service requirements; looks good on a college or job application. New to the program this year, mini-grants may be offered for non-profit group on a first come, first served basis as well as other means of acknowledgment, such as a posted sign in the designated spot, write-ups with photo, and certificates celebrating the individuals, groups or businesses.
Residents are being encouraged to take pride in the town without out of pocket expense. All is needed is a few hours of time to take a walk with the family, get together with friends and make it fun!
