The weather is turning waaaaay too beautiful to be stuck indoors doing Spring cleaning. Why not take advantage of the beautiful weather and do some OUTSIDE Spring cleaning?!
This year, the Cranford River Committee will hold its annual Spring Rahway River cleanup on Saturday, April 25th from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM. All Cranford residents are encouraged to lend a hand by helping to clean up this vitally important local resource.
Cleanups are traditionally conducted at the following stations: Kenilworth Blvd. . . . 620 Riverside Drive . . . The Mill . . . . and Mohawk Drive. Gloves and bags and other equipment necessary for clean-up will be provided. It is requested that children under 12 be accompanied by an adult.
Every year dedicated citizens gather along the river and work together to remove litter. Volunteers, on foot along the river, and even in boats IN the river, collect a wide variety of trash and debris that has found its way into the water over the long winter months.
This yearly cleanup is a great way for all of us to truly make a difference in the quality of the river that borders our home. Working alongside the “all-volunteer” River Committee, volunteer efforts make a truly positive impact. It’s also a great way for families to spend genuinely quality time together, while teaching valuable ecology and citizenship lessons to the kids. Helping our environment, and helping our kids grow to be good citizens. What could be better?
