Volunteers are needed to help with a litter clean up and litter survey this Saturday, June 10. Volunteers will meet at the Recycling office at 20-05 Saddle River Road at 8:45 AM. The bus will leave at 9 AM and return at approximately 12 PM.

Volunteers must register by Wednesday, June 7 at Noon by calling 201-794-5341. Lunch will be served after the event for all the volunteers. This will count as 3 hours of community service time for educational, religious and court requirements.

While we will be picking up litter in town, we will also be collecting data by using a mobile app called LITTERATI. This app allows you to take a picture of a piece of litter and hashtag it with details such as #bottle, #soda, etc. Using the GPS on your phone the piece of litter will have it's location tagged for a larger database. The New Jersey Clean Communities Council is currently reaching out to the creator of Litterati to gather the data for New Jersey to help us learn about litter and ways to prevent it.

If you can't make our event, try out the app and tag litter when you find it then pick it up to make Fair Lawn a cleaner place.
