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.
