South Jersey Scrub             (Posted: 1-29-20)

This cleanup initiative was started in 2018 and targets the Lower Delaware River Watershed region of New Jersey, from Trenton down to Cape May. Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) & the NJDEP are partnering with a common goal to keep trash from reaching the Delaware River and Bay. In 2019, the Scrub had over 20 partner organizations and agencies, 30 cleanups, almost 1,000 volunteers, and removed over 1,600 bags of trash.

This year's Scrub will take place from March 28 through April 26. Both PDE & NJDEP are looking for the following: 1) cleanup events already happening during that time period, in this region, 2) sites that need cleaning up, and 3) new cleanup leaders and volunteers. All of these things can be submitted through the new website at southjerseyscrub.org. We're specifically interested in bayshore communities (coastal) and urban areas in need of cleanups.
