Our Next Cleanup Event is Sunday, December 3, 2017!

Green Brook Clean Sweep!

To round out the year, we will have one more cleanup and need all the help we can get! CJST will be partnering with the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership to clean the Green Brook floodplain behind the Green Brook Regional Center. For those who remember our Trash Dismissed! event on Earth Day behind Middlesex High School, this cleanup is on the other side of the brook so you can imagine how much trash we'll find! Many thanks to Green Brook Township for helping with trash disposal. We'll be picking up lots of litter, a few tires, and whatever other junk we find! We'll need to clear the trash blockage seen in the picture and a few "ambitious" folks may venture into the stream (in waders) to pull some tires....

If you're sad that the cleanup season is ending, or you still need volunteer hours, or you just want to see your CJST friends again, this is the event for you! There is no shortage of trash so we need all our cleanup volunteers!

The event begins at 10:00 AM. We will meet at the Green Brook Regional Center at:

275 Greenbrook Road, Green Brook, NJ 08812

Please park in the lot on the right side of the building (if you're looking at it from the road). Look for the CJST truck and trailer. Come on out and join us for sign up, instructions and safety...and enjoy some light breakfast on us!

Please note that registration/RSVP is important so that we know what kind and how many supplies and refreshments to bring and set up. This is especially true if you are bringing a larger group.

Volunteer Instructions:

1. Bring along your family and friends! It's going to be a really fun and great day! The more junk we find the more rewarding the experience!

2. Wear sturdy footwear and clothing you don't mind getting dirty! Please dress for the weather and in layers since you will get warm while cleaning.

4. We will provide garbage bags, work gloves, tools, sunscreen, bug spray, light breakfast, and water for volunteers.

So come on out! We look forward to restoring this small piece of the watershed with you!

Please contact Jens Riedel at jens.riedel@cjstreamteam.org if you have questions or if you plan on bringing a larger group.
