MONTVILLE, NJ – Montville Township sponsored a second town-wide cleanup on Oct. 20, as 168 residents grabbed bags, reflective aprons and did their part to make the township look its best.
Recreation Director Lori Dent called the cleanup a “great success.”
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank the many individuals, families, businesses and civic groups who banded together to clean up and spruce up our community,” she said. “The cleanup areas ranged from parks, schools, residential areas and roadways, along waterways and the route 287 & 80 ramps that run through town. We have several roads in the municipality that have been adopted by civic organizations through the Adopt a Road program that perform up to four cleanups a year.”
Dent said she would especially like to thank the Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, Kiwanis, Key Club, Montville Police Explorers, Montville Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, Montville Reformed Church, Montville Historical Society, Montville Rotary, Women’s Club, Garden Club, St. Pius Knights of Columbus, Tzu-Chi Foundation, Valhalla Civic Association, Project Graduation, Towaco Civic Association and the many individuals and families for their efforts to keep Montville beautiful! She also gave a “great big thank you” to our Police Explorer program students who helped organize and pass out supplies and the Police and DPW Department for their support.
“I hope our annual cleanup efforts raise awareness of the importance to properly discard all refuse in order to protect our environment and keep our community beautiful,” Dent said.
