Rutgers Volunteers Partner with City to Clean Neighborhood Streets

Rutgers University students were responsible for cleaning 1,200 pounds of litter and 615 pounds of recycling off our City streets this past weekend during the first volunteer litter cleanup of the season!

Student volunteers with Rutgers University Alternative Breaks Program, the Rutgers Office of Off-Campus Living and Community Partnerships and Rutgers American Medical Students (RU AMSA), guided by the City’s Division of Clean Communities, conducted a cleanup on April 2 that netted 89 full bags of debris and recycling found on streets between Easton Avenue and College Avenue.

Many thanks to these groups for taking the time to help keep our City clean and green!
