Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis and the City Council are inviting community members and groups to take part in a citywide Earth Day clean-up on Saturday, April 20. 

Mayor Davis said, “Earth Day 2024 will provide residents a great opportunity to come out, clean up, and beautify our city.  It’s a day when we can work together building community spirit and a cleaner Bayonne.  This year’s theme is ‘Clean where you live!’” 

Officials are inviting individuals, community organizations, and other groups of volunteers to sign up to clean a specific area of the City from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  Interested organizations and individuals are invited to register as a team.  People can either form a team to participate, or the organizers can place individuals on a team near where they live. 

The Department of Public Works is coordinating the clean-up.  Participation forms are available on the homepage of the City of Bayonne website, which is www.bayonnenj.org.  You can email your interest to CleanBayonne@BayNJ.org.  For information, please call  201-858-6070.

Teams will be asked to take photos of the garbage bags collected, so that they can be displayed on Facebook. The group with the most garbage bags will win a pizza party with Mayor Davis.   

After taking part in the citywide clean-up, all participating teams and individuals will be invited to a post-clean-up event.  Volunteers will be informed of details about that event.
