The Clean Community Program is governed by the Clean Community Committee as directed by its approved Bylaws who reside in Gloucester County and are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The committee meets monthly to discuss matters relating to county beautification efforts, litter prevention and cleanup programs, recycling, and environmental education.
Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month in the first floor conference room of County Building One, 6467 Main Street. (The Committee does not meet in July or August and the December meeting is to be announced.) Meetings start at 6:30 PM and are open to the public. Those interested in Committee activities are encourage to attend. Prior to attending, please call the Clean Community Office to verify the location and time of the meeting.
The program is administered by a Clean Community Coordinator and supported by hundreds of Gloucester residents and businesses who give of their time to help keep the County of Gloucester beautiful, clean, and litter free.
For information on recent and past activities of the Clean Community Committee, please refer to the Clean Community Committee's meeting minutes available on the County's Meetings and Minutes Portal.
What We Do
The Clean Community Program promotes recycling by providing information on what is and what is not recyclable in the county, helps to coordinate the Adopt-a-Spot and Adopt-a-Highway program, and assists residents, community groups, schools, civic organizations, and others in conducting clean up and beautification events.
Much of the Clean Community Program is educating children and adults on recycling, conservation, and "going green" issues. The Clean Community Office conducts community outreach education programs in schools, for church groups and civic organizations, and at expos and special events.
