MILLTOWN, NJ - The borough will be holding a spring New Jersey Clean Communities event on Saturday, April 13 from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and is calling all civic-minded volunteers, looking to earn community service hours, extra credit or simply to lend a hand to spruce up Milltown's parks for spring and summer.

Interested volunteers can contact Councilwoman Doriann Kerber by email at dkerber@milltownboro.com or the Department of Public Works Recycling Coordinator Ralph Jasionowski by email at rjasionowski@milltownboro.com. Volunteers should be at the Milltown Borough Hall on April 13 to sign in and pick up supplies.

Milltown held its first New Jersey Clean Communities event in 2017. 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.

The Milltown Borough Hall is located at 39 Washington Avenue.
