LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Township of Livingston is hosting its first-annual “community clean-up day,” which offers a safe, fun way for residents to help “keep Livingston beautiful” by clearing litter from designated outdoor spaces, on Sunday, April 30.

The morning cleanup will be followed by an after party with food and activities at the Memorial Oval. According to the township, volunteers can also earn community-service hours for their participation. 

“We look forward to making this an annual event that helps to keep our town clean, green and garbage free,” said Mayor Shawn Klein. “We encourage everyone to sign up and join us for what promises to be a fun, rewarding day with friends, family and neighbors.”

To participate in “Pick It Up!,” residents must sign up online by Saturday, April 15, either as individuals or with a group, to volunteer to pick up and sort trash and recyclables at one of nine specific cleanup areas. Location Team Leaders will advise volunteers on additional details and provide supplies. There will be one Location Team Leader and up to 25 volunteers per site.

The nine cleanup locations include: West Hobart Gap Road; East Hobart Gap Road; Walnut Street & Eisenhower Parkway; Beaufort Avenue; Shrewsbury Avenue in Prospect Park; Shrewsbury Avenue in East Hills Park; Northfield Road up to Kiwanis; Livingston Senior/Community Center (204 Hillside Avenue); and Heritage Middle School (20 Foxcroft Drive).

Location Team Leaders should arrive at their sites by 8:30 a.m. All other volunteers should arrive by 9 a.m.

Cleanup will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Location Team Leaders will provide instructions in advance about where to park near the clean-up area and where to meet the group.

After completing their clean-up efforts, volunteers—and all residents—are invited to attend the after party at Memorial Oval from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Each participating volunteer must pre-register using the SignUpGenius page, which can be found through the Popular Links on the Township website at www.livingstonnj.org. Residents can call 862-223-8566 or email pickituplivingston@gmail.com with any questions.

Volunteers are asked to pre-register by April 15 so that the event organizers can prepare enough supplies for everyone and provide necessary instructions in advance.

Minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian while cleaning up at all designated locations.

Parking and meet-up area instructions for each location will be provided when available.
