Volunteers will meet at the Milltown Borough Hall, which is located at 39 Washington Avenue, on October 7 to sign in and pick up supplies.

The park beautification endeavor also welcomes donations of plants and perennials.

In July, Milltown held its first New Jersey Clean Communities Event. Thirty-two volunteers pitched in and collected 37 bags of trash and recyclables from Milltown parks and open space areas.

New Jersey Clean Communities events are made possible by the Clean Communities Act, which was passed in 1986. The act is an all-inclusive, liter reduction program that is aimed at cleaning up towns throughout the state. It is administered by the Clean Communities Council that also overseas other statewide cleanup endeavors like the Adopt-a-Beach and Adopt-a-Highway programs.
