SUCCESS AT PENHORN AVENUE CLEANUP
Local businesses take a step in the green direction
SECAUCUS, NJ- On Friday, July 15, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., the Secaucus Environmental Department held its first ever corporate cleanup on Penhorn Avenue. Bringing in 34 volunteers from local businesses, the team was able to remove a noticeable amount of debris from the area, including over 35 bags of garbage, close to 50 tires and a mattress.
Lynn Kramer, Cleanup Coordinator for the Town of Secaucus, put together this event to encourage the employees who work on Penhorn Avenue to get involved in keeping their space clean. While Lynn and the rest of her team were apprehensive about attendance for the cleanup because of the heat, the amount of volunteers and the hard work they put in was a pleasant surprise. Seeing how willing everyone was to help out, Lynn plans on making a cleanup of Penhorn Avenue an annual event.
Mayor Michael J. Gonnelli applauds the efforts of all involved, especially the local business participants, “Secaucus is a wonderful community to work in thanks to all of the people who call it “home” daily and are willing to share their time to keep it neat and green.”
Penhorn Avenue businesses who participated in the cleanup included: AJ Worldwide Services, Benmark Construction, Intersection, International Leather and Suede, US Crystal, Art Van Line, K-Line, Bhasin Properties, Pump It Up, Remington, Vernick & Arango, MedShare and Mega Shipping.
Secaucus is known for being a green town, holding a Silver Level Certification with Sustainable Jersey. The Environmental Department works hard on a daily basis to find new ways in which residents and businesses can help keep Secaucus green. In addition to the
work that was done on Friday, Lynn and her team hold several cleanups throughout the year.
