Tuckerton Environmental Commission Receives “Adopt-a-Highway” Award

TUCKERTON – The Tuckerton Environmental Commission was awarded the New Jersey Clean Communities Council’s “Adopt-a-Highway” Award recently.

“We are a small group, but have been very conscientious to help our community to be clean and green,” Pat Everson, the Adopt-a-Highway coordinator for the commission, said.

The Commission is committed to keeping the community clean and healthy. Not only do members encourage the planting of native species throughout the borough, they installed pet waste stations and fishing line receptacles to reduce litter.

Through the Adopt-A-Highway program, the Commission actively removes litter from roadways.

“For such a small community, it was an honor to win this statewide award,” Everson said.  “Tuckerton is very proud.”
