North Bergen students clean township and plant trees

Ten volunteers from the North Bergen High School Environmental Club cleaned up Kennedy Boulevard from the High School to 85th Street and all the avenues leading up to Bergenline on Wednesday, Oct. 27. The volunteers, along with moderators Dana Hojnowski and Jennifer Checchio and Recycling Coordinator Tom Stampe, picked up about 10 bags of garbage and over four bags of recyclables from streets, sidewalks, and storm drains to help to keep waterways clean.

Following this they went to the North Bergen library to help plant two trees, with Mayor Nicholas Sacco on hand to thank them for their contributions to our community. John Shaw and workers from the DPW and the North Bergen MUA sponsored and arranged the event. The trees were purchased and donated by NB Earth Talks.
