Meet this morning in Riverview Park for the Great JC Cleanup!

The 2nd Annual Great Jersey City Cleanup in the HeightsApril 29, 2017, 9:00amJersey City HeightsAs part of The 2nd Great Jersey City Clean-Up, we will be joining our neighbors and rolling up our sleeves to help clean up the Heights. The Leonard Gordon Park Conservancy will be joining the Western Slopes Neighborhood Assoc., Sparrow Hills Neighborhood Assoc., Zabriskie Block Assoc., Heights Coalition, Riverview Neighborhood Assoc., Washington Park, Pershing Fields, St. Anne's, St. John's, P.S. 28, P.S. 27, P.S. 25 and MS 7, and United for Clean Streets.

As always, you bring yourself, we'll bring trash bags and gloves. We'll also have two trash cans on wheels. We highly recommend you bring your own broom, dust pan and bucket. Having a bucket will allow you to collect more at once, returning to the big trash bag to empty your bucket when full.

Kids love picking up trash! Why not put them to work and teach them community stewardship at the same time? Guaranteed fun for the entire family!

The Great Jersey City Clean-Up is brought to you by the City of Jersey City Official and Keep Jersey City Beautiful. Keep Jersey City Beautiful is the FIRST affiliate of Keep America Beautiful (KAB) in the State of New Jersey. KAB is a leading national nonprofit that inspires and educates people to take action everyday to improve and beautify their community.
