Bloomfield Township Awarded $111,770 Grant for Clean Communities Initiatives

 

Bloomfield, NJ – Bloomfield Township is excited to announce that it has been awarded a $111,770 grant from the New Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC) and the state Department of Environmental Protection. This generous grant will support the township’s ongoing efforts to create a cleaner, more sustainable community through various environmental initiatives.

“We are incredibly grateful to the NJCCC and the Department of Environmental Protection for their support,” said Mayor Ted Gamble. “This grant will significantly bolster our community’s efforts to keep Bloomfield clean and green. With these funds, we can enhance our volunteer cleanup programs, improve public awareness about the impacts of litter, and take concrete steps towards a more sustainable future. Together, we can make a real difference in preserving the beauty and health of our township.”

Clean Communities grants provide essential funding to local governments, enabling them to organize volunteer cleanups, purchase necessary cleanup equipment, install trash and recycling receptacles in public spaces, promote litter education initiatives, and enhance stormwater management programs. These efforts are crucial in fostering a Litter Free NJ.

Bloomfield Township looks forward to utilizing this grant to further its commitment to environmental stewardship and community engagement. The public should stay tuned for more ways to get involved in the coming months.

The NJCCC is a statewide, comprehensive, litter-abatement program that runs public awareness campaigns to educate the public about the harmful environmental impacts of litter and promotes the use of reusable bags to reduce plastic pollution.
