PARSIPPANY — Parsippany High School Environmental Club organized and hosted the annual grounds cleanup: Slam Dunk the Junk-Keep Morris County Litter Free, on April 25.
This is a state-wide campaign and held by the New Jersey Clean Communities Program and sponsored by the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority.
PHS Environmental Club advisors Nancy Lennon and Kelly Garbarino, club President Caitlyn Ford, Vice President Winterlyn Curley, Secretary Hannah Webber, and many PHS students collected trash from the school grounds for over two hours. In the end, many bags of garbage and recyclables were collected and properly disposed of. Refreshments for the effort were supplied by the PHS PTSA and were very much appreciated.
The PHS Environmental Club will be receiving a $500 grant for participating in this campaign and will use the money to buy necessary equipment to further the recycling program at PHS.
