Cleanup A Success Thanks to Volunteers

Cleanup A Success Thanks to Volunteers About 100 local volunteers helped county, state and township staff clean up 47 tons of debris from Rancocas State Park in Hainesport last week.

The NJ AmeriCorps Watershed Program partnered with Burlington County to sponsor the spring cleanup as part of the County Clean Communities’ “Just Pick it Up” campaign.

Large, heavy items were cleaned up last Thursday and Friday by County and State Parks rangers, County Jail inmates and staff from the County Resource Conservation Department, Occupational Training Center and Hainesport Public Works Department. Volunteers on Saturday picked up three tons of litter and small debris.

“We want to publicly thank all of the many volunteers, groups and staff members who worked hard in a great collaborative effort to clean up nearly 50 tons of debris over many acres,” said Freeholder Bill Haines, Jr.

“Totals from the County Resource Recovery Complex showed over 21 tons of concrete, 10 tons of treated lumber, 36 tires and over 15 tons of litter including barrels, car parts and household items.”

Participants included the Rancocas Conservancy, NJ Audubon Society at Rancocas Nature Center, Pinelands Preservation Alliance and Hainesport Emergency Squad.
