Our Next Cleanup Event is Saturday, May 19, 2018!

Green Brook Park Cleanup in Plainfield

Please join CJST for our next cleanup in Green Brook Park in Plainfield and North Plainfield.  The Green Brook flows through this park after passing through the highly urbanized areas of Plainfield where it picks up a lot of litter and dumped trash.  It's really in need of some TLC.  We will be partnering with Cathy Cole, a local resident who organized a recent cleanup here.  With a handful of volunteers, they were only able to make a small dent in the trash situation.  With a solid CJST crew we can make a bigger impact.  The stream here is knee deep or less in most places so there will be an opportunity to wade in to pull out trash.  Please bring tall boots or waders, or wear some old sneakers that can get wet!  Of course there is plenty of opportunity to clean along the banks for those who don't want to go in the water.  We will be working with Union County Parks who will handle trash disposal. 

The event begins at 9:00 AM on Park Drive between Clinton Avenue and West End Avenue in Plainfield north of Route 28 We will be closer to the CLinton Avenue side.  Park along the road or in the small lot.  Come on out and join us for sign up, instructions and safety...and enjoy some 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 or wet!  Bring waders if you have them and want to get in the water.  And dress for the weather!


We will provide garbage bags, work gloves, tools, breakfast, and water for volunteers.

So come on out! We look forward to restoring this small piece of the wathershed 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.
