Greener Bloomfield meeting Thursday at 7 PM at the Bloomfield Civic Center. There will be an open public discussion with Bloomfield's Recycling Coordinator Joe Testa and Department of Public Works and Parks director Anthony Nesto.
They will discuss the waste management and recycling programs in town, with some statistics, information on the expanded list of recyclables, and challenges they face where we might be able to help. Mr. Nesto will also discuss their green initiatives and challenges, including lawn and field maintenance, water conservation efforts, plantings, infrastructure, and even Christmas lights (can we finally go LED?). Everyone is welcome. Bring your questions and suggestions!
Greener Bloomfield was able to reach some success in 2010 when it was actively involved in consulting with downtown redevelopment planners. They became Sustainable Jersey certified - one of only 34 towns in NJ at that time. Now there are many more grants to apply for under Sustainable Jersey certification
