HAMILTON — Neighbors, volunteers and local businesses will embark on an ambitious cleanup and beautification project in the township’s Bromley section in observance of Earth Day.

The cleanup, scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 21, has already drawn support and donations of supplies from local churches, schools and service groups, including the Bromley Civic Association. Volunteers will pick up litter along the Johnson Avenue flood-control canal and help clean up vacant lots and properties.

Boarded-up windows and doors on abandoned or vacant properties will get a makeover, courtesy of local artist Thomas Kelly of Fine Artists Prints. Two neighborhood parks will also be cleaned.

Businesses that have agreed to donate time or materials include Hamilton Supply, the Texas Roadhouse (under construction), Rita’s Water Ice, The Home Depot, and Carella’s Chocolates and the Hallmark store, among others.

Detective Quincy Hendryx, the community policing officer who patrols Bromley, said neighborhood businesses are eager to help. “We first approached Longford Landscaping on Whitehead Road and Kucker-Haney Paint Co. on Nottingham Way, who immediately agreed to provide assistance,” he said. “From that point, the floodgates of business support opened up to us.”

For more information or to volunteer or donate materials, contact Gary Gray at the Bromley Community Center at (609) 587-8100 or ggray@hamiltonnj.com.

    We have had some great press coverage.

    WZBN did an interview that aired in Tuesday night’s program. Today, we were interviewed on WIMG AM 1300, which will air tonight at 6:30PM.

    This event was the epitomy of resident and local government working together and working hard to make an impact. It is great to live in Hamilton Township, NJ.

    We had over 50 people volunteer. We had supllies donated from Kucker-Haney Paint, Home Depot, Bijai, Hamilton Supply and from many Hamilton Residents.

    We filled two 7 foot tall 40 foot long dumpsters with trash and brush (that’s a lot!), decorated 18 winfdows and 5 doors with paint, cleaned up 3 parks painting BB Backboards and benches, cleaning up glass, trash and brush and finally, people braved the poison ivy and cleaned up along the flood control way for several blocks..

    We worked 6 hours (9am-3pm) and then the Township came in behind us and picked up everything that we bagged and put on the curb! We have a great PW and Parks Department.
