CLARK, NJ – The Clark Reservoir is getting some attention on Saturday, Oct. 15, as the Clark Environmental Commission conducts a “Reservoir Cleanup” beginning at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers are needed to lend a hand.

“We meet at the Clark Recreation Center for a safety talk,” Commissioner Ellen Mulligan said. “Then we disperse into groups to some of the easier-to-reach spots along the reservoir.”

Mulligan said there are always some interesting finds along the banks of the reservoir. Volunteers will bag trash and debris and the bags will be picked up the following day.

“It’s a good opportunity for scouts and school groups to satisfy volunteer hours,” Mulligan said. Individuals and families are also welcome. 

Volunteers should wear jeans, long-sleeved shirts, work gloves and boots. Disposable gloves and trash bags will be provided. Participants are also asked to bring a 5-gallon carry bucket with handle to collect trash that will be transferred to larger bags.

Coffee and breakfast will be served at the organizational meet-up. Following the clean-up, volunteers will be treated to a pizza lunch at noon.  

RSVPs are not required, although those planning to attend are asked to call Environmental Commission Chairman Kevin Koch at 201-247-4392.

In case of rain, the clean-up will take place on Sunday, Oct. 16.
