Environmental Club Participates in the Junk in the Trunk Program


PARSIPPANY — Members of the Parsippany High School Environmental Club volunteered their time and effort to the Slam Dunk the Junk-Keep Morris County Litter Free educational campaign on May 5.

This state-wide campaign was held by the New Jersey Clean Committees Program and was sponsored by the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority (MCMUA).

MCMUA supplied the event with gloves, bags and a campaign banner. The PHS Environmental Club, advised by Nancy Lennon, organized the campaign along with other students to beautify the school grounds.

The students collected garbage that covered two acres of PHS grounds. This resulted in many bags of garbage as well as recyclables after 2 hours of hard work.

Snacks and drinks were provided by the PTSA and delivered by Roberta Cooper, President of the PTSA.

This program provided a $500 grant for the club to purchase recycling supplies.
