Join in Hamilton Township’s Annual Stream Clean-Up
Volunteers Needed to Help Keep Hamilton Clean and Green
(Hamilton) – Hamilton residents can once again help keep “America’s Favorite Hometown” “Clean and Green” with its annual Stream Clean Up.
The Stream Clean-Up will take place on Saturday, April 17, 2009, beginning at 8:00 a.m. at the main entrance of Kuser Park located on Newkirk Avenue. The Clean-Up is expected to conclude by 1:00 p.m. that day. In the case of inclement weather, the Clean-up will be rescheduled to Saturday, April 24, 2009.
“It is important for us to be good stewards of our environment, not only for our sake, but for our children, grandchildren, and future generations. Our annual Stream Clean-Up is a great way for residents to help protect our environment, right here in our community. We are asking residents to assist in this effort by volunteering their time to help keep Hamilton ‘Clean and Green’,” says Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo.
After volunteers meet and enjoy coffee at Kuser Park, they will depart with members of the Hamilton Township Environmental Commission, who has organized and sponsored the event, to selected stream sites across the community. Some of the selected sites include portions of Shady Brook Park, Gropps Lake, portions of Pond Run near Paxson Avenue, Steinert High School, Klockner Road and George Dye Road, as well as portions of Miry Brook near Flock Road and in Warwick Park.
Additionally, the first 50 volunteers who sign up for the Stream Clean Up will receive FREE recyclable grocery bags. To register for the clean up, residents may call (609) 890-3674 or (609) 888-0115.
“Join us in this effort to keep our community clean and enjoyable for our families, neighbors and friends. By pitching in to help out in the great cause, our entire community and local environment will benefit,” concludes Mayor Bencivengo.
