Three Volunteer Teams Partner for One Event

On April 28, the Green Team, Shade Tree Committee and Environmental Commission partnered to host a major volunteer event for Bernardsville in the Bernards High School parking lot.
 
It’s almost mind-boggling that the free electronics recycling event brought out so many residents to avail themselves of the drive-thru service and off-loading of items from vehicles, making recycling old computers, printers and other electronic waste as easy as possible.  It took four municipal employees to load this large TV into the dumpster; left to right: Kenny Kelleher, John Macdowall (in rear), Nick Dobash, and Tom Kennedy.  This event was organized by the Bernardsville Green Team and the e-waste will be handled by Somerset County recycling.

With all the storm damage this spring, the free tree seedlings grown by NJ State Forestry, were in great demand. Pictured with some of the free trees, from left to right are David Neill, of M.J. Neill,  Tom Wood and Joe Latino, Shade Tree Committee, Kerry Hazelton, Environmental Commission,  and Ted Prentiss, a resident of Basking Ridge. The give-away was in conjunction with the Shade Tree Committee for the National Arbor Day Foundation, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Canon and FedEx. 

Our Environmental Commission partnered with the nonprofit clean water advocate Raritan Headwaters to offer well water testing to citizens at below-market cost.  A basic test kit was available for purchase, with easy-to-follow instructions, so residents could collect water samples and then return the samples to Bernardsville Borough Hall between 7 and 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 3 for results.  Testing was also available for other contaminants including lead, arsenic, and radon at an additional cost.  [Visit www.TestMyWell.org for more information. ] Pictured left to right are Mike Anderson, NJ Audubon, Heidi O’Neill, Raritan Headwaters intern, Bernardsville Mayor Kevin Sooy, and Kristi MacDonald, Environmental Commission.

The multi-pronged event, organized by Ed English, with all the teams mentioned, was well received so plans are underway for 2019.
