Keep Jersey City Beautiful Event on April 29th at Mary Benson Park

19 Apr 2017, Posted by Rob Crow in News

Keep Jersey City Beautiful (KJCB), a Keep America Beautiful affiliate, encourages communities and individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their environment by reducing waste and preventing litter. The Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program, engaging more than 5 million volunteers and participants every year to create positive change and lasting impact in local communities.

This NJ.com article highlights the tremendous amount of litter that was removed from our city in just one day:
