LIVINGSTON, NJ—Township residents and organizations will be given the opportunity to participate in a community-wide cleanup of parks, recreation areas and roadbeds on April 30, thanks to a proposal presented on Monday at the Livingston Township Council’s conference session.

If adopted, the proposal, presented by resident Shira Rost, who heads an ad-hoc committee spearheading the effort, would mean that residents, businesses and organizations wishing to participate could register online or in person at the event beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Oval. The event would be preceded by refreshments for participants.

Rost said that possible sites from which litter would be cleaned up would be Memorial and Madonna Fields, Hobart Gap Road and Riker Hill Park.

She added that organizations could potentially sponsor some of the activities and that the proceeds from sponsorships could be used to purchase cleanup supplies and awards for groups collecting the most trash and attaining other goals.

The organizer also said that a band might provide music at the awards ceremony.

According to Mayor Shawn Klein, any funds left from the sponsorship fees that are not used on the day of the event could be used to purchase recycling supplies for future township cleanup activities.

On a related issue, resident Bernard Searle of 14 Washington Court suggested that the township explore a shared-service agreement with neighboring Millburn Township that would allow Livingston residents to take recyclable materials to Millburn’s public works yard recycling facility.

Searle said this could potentially save Livingston the cost of the three recycling “events” it holds during the year.

However, acting township manager Russell Jones explained that both Millburn and Livingston paid to haul away recyclable materials that are collected, meaning that the Millburn arrangement would likely not have any added benefit to Livingston.
