HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- The sun was shining for the Hasbrouck Heights Green Team's inaugural Community Cleanup Day in the borough on Saturday.
Over 100 residents came help clean up Hasbrouck Heights Saturday morning. While most had pre-registered, about one dozen signed up that morning. Volunteers included Girl Scout troops, families, couples, middle and high school students. Helpers received work gloves, garbage bags and pick up sticks. The Hackensack Riverkeeper lent the pick up sticks, and the gloves and garbage bags were purchased from monetary donations.
The volunteers fanned out across the borough picking up garbage from along the roads. There were nine pre-planned routed stretching along the Boulevard from Pasadena to Lincoln Avenue; Terrace Avenue from Pasadena to Passaic Avenue; a portion of Central Avenue; a portion of Burton Avenue from Washington Place to Williams Avenue; Ravine Avenue to and including the football field and surrounding facilities, and Woodland Park.
A member of the Hasbrouck Heights Green Team noted that they received positive feedback on the day, and plan to do another event in the future.
