SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ -  The South Plainfield Business Association, has renewed the organization’s Adopt-A-Spot agreement with the South Plainfield Clean Business Association.  A crew of three to four people will continue to clean debris from the Lakeview Avenue overpass on a quarterly basis.

The overpass serves as a gateway to the Borough’s civic center.  The SPBA first adopted this spot in 2009.  The organization believes it is important to keep this stretch of roadway clean, to give a good first impression to people entering the complex of municipal and county buildings and parks.  Much of the area has been adopted by businesses and families that volunteer their time and work to remove litter.  The SPBA is promoting awareness of local environmental issues within the business community.  In addition to litter control, the SPBA is working with the South Plainfield Green Team on an anti-idling campaign, and on “green building” policy and education.

The CBA is looking for more adopters for commercial locations such as Hamilton Boulevard, South Plainfield Avenue and Oak Tree Avenue.
