EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - On Sunday, February 16, the "Cleaning Up our Community" group, part of the East Brunswick Township Beautification Committee, held its first cleanup event.

We chose an area near Hammarskjold Middle School that was brought to our attention through pictures of the area.

The volunteers bagged trash and sorted recycling into cans to be brought to the Recycling Center.
