Our Next Cleanup Event is Saturday, December 8, 2018!

Green Brook Clean Sweep 2!

CJST will be partnering with the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership and the NJ Sierra Club to clean the Green Brook floodplain behind the Green Brook Regional Center. We cleaned at this spot last December but the the river keeps bringing in more trash!  There is a new (larger) blockage of the river which has accumulated lots of trash and there is still more to do in the floodplain too.  We'll need a few people in waders to help clear the blockage but we'll have something to do for everyone!

The event begins at 10:00 AM. We will meet at the Green Brook Regional Center at 275 Greenbrook Road, Green Brook, NJ 08812.  The cleanup will end around 1:00 PM.

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. 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.
 
5.  Please wear waders if you would like to help in-stream.  The water here is not very deep.

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 or (908) 240-1346 if you have questions or if you plan on bringing a larger group.
