PISCATAWAY, NJ - Sunny skies and Spring temperatures were in order for Piscataway’s 10th Annual Township Clean-up Day on Saturday. 

Over 600 volunteers registered through their community groups or on their own to help pick up litter from parks around the township.  This year’s theme was ‘Keep Calm and Clean On Piscataway’.

“This was the biggest turnout for our 10 year anniversary of the cleanup program,” said event coordinator and Ward 4 Councilwoman, Michelle Lombardi as she helped distribute trash collection materials at the Little League Complex.

Participants wore purple T-shirts emblazoned with a logo during the clean-up, and were given bright orange trash bags and work gloves along with a tote bag to carry bottled water, bagels and snacks to keep them fueled.

According to the registration form, the goals for community-wide cleanup day were litter prevention and minimizing waste “to improve the landscape in our community and help make our community a better place to live, work and play.”
