ROXBURY CLEAN COMMUNITIES

2022 CC logo color less space

The Roxbury Township Clean Communities program, in collaboration with the  New Jersey Clean Communities program, is a comprehensive litter abatement program that serves both residents and visitors. The program's mission is to reduce litter in public places, encourage volunteer cleanup of public lands, and maintain litter reduction through education and enforcement.

We are encouraging our residents to take pride in their community without incurring any out-of-pocket costs. All you need is a few hours to go for a walk with your family or meet up with friends.  

We are looking for individuals, school groups, churches, or businesses willing to volunteer their time to help keep Roxbury beautiful.

Storm Water Pollution-

Publication1


Water from rain and melting snow that fows over lawns, parking lots and streets is known as storm water runoff. This water, which travels along gutters, into catch basins and through storm drain pipes and ditches, usually is not treated, but then flows or is discharged into local waterbodies. Along the way, the storm water picks up trash (fast-food wrappers, cigarette butts, styrofoam cups, etc.) and toxins and other pollutants (gas, motor oil, antifreeze, fertilizers, pesticides and pet droppings). This polluted storm water can kill fish and other wildlife, destroy wildlife habitat, contaminate drinking water sources and force the closing of beaches because of health threats to swimmers.

Human activity is largely responsible for the storm water pollution. Everything that we put on the ground or into the storm drain can end up in our water. Each of us has a responsibility to make sure these contaminants stay out of our water. Whether we have clean water is up to you.

Fun facts and recycling news!save paper and trees image

Did you know that recycling a stack of newspaper just 3 feet high saves one tree!  

When in doubt, throw it out! - I know many of us wish everything was recyclable, but many things are not. So even though a pinata is made of paper, it's not recyclable.
