Help us keep Cape May County clean! A variety of volunteer opportunities are available whether you’re a resident, business, civic association, school or non-profit organization.
One Day Cleanup Event – Civic groups, volunteer organizations, churches and scout troops, as well as residents and businesses, are encouraged to participate in a joint effort to clean up our streets and public properties.
Mini Grants are available to any school group or non-profit association in return for cleaning up designated public areas. Groups are eligible to receive a stipend which is dependent on the number of volunteers. Equipment and supplies are available to volunteers.
Adopt a Highway is a comprehensive, statewide, volunteer program created by the New Jersey Department of Transportation and the New Jersey Clean Communities Council to encourage volunteers to clean and maintain highways. To adopt a highway an application must be filed requesting permission. For more information about this program, click here: Overview (njclean.org)
