In an effort to keep our roads and public areas more attractive and safe, Bernards Township participates in the State funded Clean Communities Program. As part of this, the Mayor and Township Committee recently established the Adopt-A-Road program.

The Adopt-A-Road program allows organizations and individuals to join the Township in producing safe, attractive, litter-free roadways within our communities. The organizations help teach their groups about a clean community as well as lowering the cost of litter removal by the Township.

This waste management strategy can also be made available to groups that wish to clean up public property other than Township roads. For example, groups may choose to clean a stream or drainage way. Township parks, open spaces and Green Acre parcels are other examples of public land that may be adopted.

In return for services, Bernards Township will fabricate and erect a sign that identifies the program and organization adopting an area or road. To find out more and enlist your organization or club, email us, or call the Public Works Department @ 908.204.3084.
