BRICK – As part of the township’s “Pick up Brick” anti-litter campaign, the township Environmental Commission and volunteers will be meeting to conduct a community cleanup on Saturday, August 4 at 9 a.m. at the Sawmill Tract bicycle and hiking trail network.

The path has access points off of Burnt Tavern Road west of Maple Avenue, at the Fire Training Center, 500 Herbertsville Road (park at the Haven’s Homestead property and utilize the crosswalk) and from Herbertsville Park at 501 Colorado Avenue. Environmental Commission members will be on hand at all three access points to provide residents with bags, gloves and instructions. Volunteers should dress appropriately, including hats and long sleeves to prevent tick exposure, and be prepared to walk.

Residents who are interested in volunteering are asked to email pickupbrick@bricktownship.net.

The recently introduced “Pick up Brick” anti-litter campaign includes three components: Education- Sharing best practices to eliminate litter; Enforcement- Highlighting consequences for littering or not adhering to township code and municipal law; Action- Environmental Commission led clean-ups
