The first Earth Day occurred on April 22, 1970, to promote ecology and awareness regarding the growing problems from air, water, and soil pollution. Many consider this the birth of the modern environmental movement. Over the years, Earth Day has expanded into a global campaign that is celebrated throughout the month of April.

As a local observance, the Pittsgrove Township Environmental Commission will be cleaning Almond Road from the Maurice River to Gershal Avenue on Saturday April 24th from 9:00 AM- 11:00 AM  (Rain date : Saturday May 1st from 9:00 AM- 11:00 AM).

Want to help?  Please call the Environmental Commission at 856-358-2300, ext. 6021 (or send an email to [email protected]) and leave your name, phone number, and email address so that we know how many supplies to get and how to send you followup information.

If you can’t make it for this road cleanup, please take a few minutes during April to pick up any litter that someone may have thrown on your property.

Thanks for working to keep Pittsgrove clean and pristine.
