It Takes a City

first_img× Keeping our properties clean is a key part of maintaining our community. Let’s show pride in Bayonne by cleaning up around our homes, businesses, and other properties. Please do not sweep litter into the streets or into the sewers, because that does not solve the problem.  Remove the litter and put it into secure garbage bags.We thank all homeowners, landlords, building superintendents, agents, and tenants who keep the grounds clean around the properties in their care. One problem that we face is the increasing number of absentee landlords and others who do not take responsibility for their properties.  The Public Works Director and the Sanitation Superintendent are authorized to issue violations to the owners of properties that have not been kept clean.All of us have a role to play in keeping Bayonne clean.  It’s not just a matter for municipal employees.  The City of Bayonne is all of us. I would like to highlight two regular clean-up activities.The Bayonne Nature Club organizes monthly clean-ups.  The next Nature Club activity is a shoreline clean-up that is scheduled for Saturday, March 20, from 9 to 11 a.m., at Rutkowski Park, which is located north of Gregg-Bayonne County Park. They would welcome volunteers.The Bayonne Clean Communities Program has a series of monthly clean-ups within a four-block radius of Lincoln Community School.  The next one is set for Sunday, March 28, from 10  a.m. to 2 p.m.  For more information, please call 201-858-6357 or email [email protected]@baynj.org.Thanks for doing your part.  It takes a city to keep our community clean.It Takes a City As the piles of snow have melted around Bayonne, we have seen litter and grime that were trapped underneath. Those snow mounds were hiding cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, wood, animal waste, and even mattresses.  Now would be a great time to clean up the items that were hiding beneath the snow. Please add any recyclable items you find to your next round of recycling.  Place non-recyclable items into garbage bags for the next pick-up.Let’s all remove litter from our properties regularly. Although we will be having a citywide clean-up next month for Earth Day, I would encourage you to get a jumpstart on removing litter now.  That being said, the winter is not done until March 20. Winter-style weather can linger into April.  That’s why it pays to pick up that litter now.center_img As the piles of snow have melted around Bayonne, we have seen litter and grime that were trapped underneath.
