Last night, the Clean City Block Captains Meeting took place at the New Brunswick Free Public Library and Donna Caputo (Recycling Coordinator and Clean Communities Coordinator) “was happy that new residents registered to become new block captains in 2014 which will help make the City even cleaner this year.”
Mayor Cahill attended and spoke to residents about all the ongoing initiatives New Brunswick has to keep the City clean.
“Block by block, we see the improvements first hand. Those of you who have been Block Captains are to be commended for your efforts. Those of you new to the program, I thank you for taking the time to keep our City beautiful, one block at a time,” Mayor Cahill said. “I also ask that you keep this thought in your mind…we wouldn’t need to clean our streets like we do if we could prevent litter before it happens. Just remember, all litter is the result of someone putting it there,” Mayor Cahill added.
Donna Caputo reminds all New Brunswick residents “that they can register to become a Block Captain at any time throughout the year.”
