Clean Communities Program

About Clean Communities

Clean Communities is a State-wide grant program funded through the NJ Clean Communities Council. It is a comprehensive, litter-abatement program created by the passage of the Clean Communities Act in 1986. The Act provides a funding source for the program by placing a tax on fifteen categories of businesses that may produce litter-generating products. The Act also provides guidelines on the use of funds. Municipalities and counties must implement litter abatement programs that incorporate the elements of cleanup, enforcement and education. Municipalities and counties must file statistical reports with the New Jersey Clean Communities Council, Inc. every grant year. Statistical reports track the expenditure of funds and the progress of local programs.

Morris Plains Clean Communities

The Morris Plains Clean Communities Program: In Morris Plains, non-profit groups volunteer under the mini-grant program to participate in special litter pickup days during the months of October and April. Currently, every street in the borough is covered at least once a year through this program. Mini-grants are available for groups and clubs that wish to participate.
