SUMMIT, NJ - The 10th annual City of Summit Earth Day Clean-Up will be take place on back-to-back weekends -- April 23, from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., and May 1, from 1 - 4 p.m. -- at several locations throughout the Hilltop City.

In 2015,, more than 180 volunteers of all ages helped to beautify parks and open spaces in Summit, collecting an estimated 1.15 tons of trash and debris. Volunteers also removed invasive plants and laid 12 yards of wood chips on trails.

“Each day, we can have a tremendous impact on the world around us,” said Summit Mayor Nora Radest. “By joining with our friends and neighbors as part of the Earth Day Clean-Up, we decide that the difference we make will help to make Summit a better place to live, work and for us all to enjoy.”
