Citizens for a Cleaner Perth Amboy

By Noelle Zaleski —

PERTH AMBOY — Citizens for a Cleaner Perth Amboy was started by Noelle Zaleski, a concerned citizen who felt it was time to do something about the litter in Perth Amboy. Volunteers, Councilwoman Lisa Nanton, Tracy Jordan, Steven Nasciemento, Christine Pasquale, Mark Blunda and Matthew Zaleski cleaned the area along Smith and Herbert to Market Street.

Noelle Zaleski said “We gathered 8 large bags of garbage and it really made a difference!” Besides garbage, Tracy Jordan spotted a small snake in the grass. Noelle Zaleski proudly held up the garter snake sighting another good reason to keep out city clean for the small creatures that also share our home. They are an important part of our environment because they eat rodents and other pests. Noelle Zaleski is hoping in the future by working with business owners that we can form an Adopt and Area program so that specific areas of town will be kept up by specific groups. Councilwoman Lisa Nanton also suggested we get our church groups involved.

More information on future cleanups will be provided soon on our Facebook Page, Citizens For A Cleaner Perth Amboy.
