BAYONNE, NJ – The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has awarded Bayonne more than $100,000 that the city can use in a number of ways to bolster the environment.

The city announced that the award is for $121,435.27 in New Jersey Clean Communities funding. Last year, Bayonne received $106,246. The grants help municipalities conduct a variety of anti-litter activities.

“I would like to thank the DEP for this increase in Bayonne’s Clean Communities funding,” Mayor James Davis said. “Bayonne will use this grant for trash receptacles, leaf bags, equipment, clean-ups and related administrative costs.”

Clean Communities funds assist monthly clean-ups by the Bayonne Nature Club and the annual Clean Shores program, through which state prisoners remove debris from Bayonne’s shorelines, according to the city.

The grants are funded by a legislated user fee on manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors that produce litter-generating products. Disbursements are based on the number of housing units and miles of municipally owned roadways within each town.

Activities funded by Clean Communities grants in New Jersey include clean-ups of storm water systems that can disperse trash into streams, rivers, and bays; beach clean-ups; public information and education campaigns; and purchases of litter-collection equipment such as receptacles, recycling bins, anti-litter signs, and graffiti removal supplies.
