Sustainable Jersey Certified Again

Sustainable Jersey

South Orange is once again a Sustainable Jersey certified community.

One of only 212 in the state, South Orange achieved Sustainable Jersey certification at the bronze level. Certified towns are an outstanding group of municipalities that are making important contributions toward the long-term goal of a sustainable New Jersey and world. 

To become Sustainable Jersey certified, South Orange had to complete a balance of the rigorous program’s sustainability actions. In addition, South Orange created a green team and did 2 of the 12 priority actions by completing the prescription drug safety and disposal and natural resource inventory priorities in addition to many other actions totaling 255 points. In 2009 South Orange was one of the original 34 communities to achieve Sustainable Jersey certification in the first year of the programs existence. Since then it has maintained certification status and won three collaboration awards from Sustainable Jersey for cross border projects with other towns. Sustainable Jersey is a voluntary program that requires no fee for the certification.

To get involved with South Orange’s green team and sustainability initiatives, contact environmentalcommission@southorange.org. To participate in Sustainable Jersey free workshops and events held across the state, visit www.SustainableJersey.com.
