SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - Lisa Roseo has renewed her Adopt-A-Spot agreement with the South Plainfield Clean Business Association for the next two years. She and her family have been maintaining the stream crossing at Cedarbrook Avenue and Morris Avenue for the last ten years. They will continue doing quarterly cleanups along the roadside and the adjacent open space that stretches around onto Morris Avenue.
This wooded area near Riley School and the Senior Residence attracts litter and illegal dumping, so it is important to have regular cleanups. The stream crossing has also been adopted by the Cedarcroft Bible Chapel, which does their cleanups in other months. Studies have shown that litter attracts more litter, but clean places tend to stay clean.
The Roseo’s are active participants in the Borough’s Clean Communities Program, joining in town-wide cleanups and trail maintenance at the Highland Woods nature reserve.
The CBA is looking for more adopters for stream crossings and open spaces. Walnut Street Park and the Belmont Avenue stream crossing are available for adoption.
