Brigantine Clean Communities

NJCC logoNew Jersey Clean Communities is a statewide litter-abatement program created by the passage of the Clean Communities Act.  The program is managed by the (New Jersey)  Department of Environmental Protection, Department of Treasury, and Clean Communities Council.  It’s supported by local governments, businesses, community organizations, schools and individuals who work together to keep New Jersey clean.

The Clean Communities Act, passed first in 1986 and later in 2002, establishes a funding mechanism for the program by placing a user-fee on manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors who may produce litter-generating products.  The user-fee, collected by the Department of Treasury and disbursed by the Department of Environment Protection,  generates approximately $14 million each year.

  • In 2008 and years prior, $4 million was placed in the State Recycling Fund and then disbursed to municipalities in the form of recycling tonnage grants.  Because of the passage of the Recycling Enhancement Act in 2008, this will no longer occur.
  • $375,000 is disbursed to a non profit (currently the Clean Communities Council) for the implementation of statewide education related to litter-abatement.
  • Of the balance, 80 percent goes to 559 municipalities, 10  percent goes to 21 counties, and 10 percent goes to the Division of Parks and Forestry located in the Department of Environmental Protection.
  • There is hereby established the City of Brigantine Clean Communities Act Committee to make recommendations concerning the administration of the Clean Communities and Recycling Act, N.J.S.A. 13:1E-92 et seq., and to assist the City of Brigantine in developing and implementing regulations concerning the control of litter and other waste-generating activities and to collect such information concerning the program of waste and recycling activities as is required for any annual report relative to the application for and receipt of State of New Jersey aid for such programs available pursuant to N.J.S.A. 13:1E-99.2 and other provisions of law.The City of Brigantine Clean Communities Act Committee shall consist of five members, who shall serve terms of one year. Vacancies in the membership of the Clean Communities Act Committee shall be appointed by the City Council.The Recycling Coordinator and Control Officer, in the Department of Public Safety, shall serve as the advisor to the Clean Communities Act Committee.

New Jersey Clean Communities at the local level involves a three-fold attack on litter:  cleanup, enforcement and education.

You will also save money by switching to cloth napkins and towels (and diapers and wipes if you have a child) because you won’t have to purchase new disposable ones every month. Another great way to save money and go green is by reusing and recycling things you usually throw away.

Going green is sustainable.
