Litter Weekend April 29 & 30
Keep it clean and green, Lafayette!
Lafayette Township Clean Communities is sponsoring Litter Weekend on April 29 and 30. Please pitch in and volunteer some time for this very important community service. Attention high school students: This can count toward your community service hours! Residents should pick up litter (separate recyclables when possible) along their road or nearby township roads. Please supervise children carefully and WEAR GLOVES! Garbage and recyclables may be deposited in the trucks parked at the Township Municipal Building, 33 Morris Farm Rd (NEW LOCATION), at any time over the weekend. If you are unable to transport the bags, you may leave them along the road in clear view and the township road department will pick them up on garbage collection days. Thank you very much to our Road Department for their help with Litter Weekend.

Garbage bags, gloves, reflective vests, and litter pick sticks will be available at the Municipal Building beginning 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 29. Vests and litter pick sticks must be returned by 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 30 to the front porch of the Municipal Building.

FREE hot dogs, beverages, give-aways, and T-Shirts, will be available at the Municipal Building, Saturday only, April 29, from 9 to 1.

INCENTIVE FOR FAMILIES If you pick up litter on Saturday and fill out a form at the Municipal Building, your name will be entered into a drawing for a gift card to a local business. Drawing at 2:00 pm on SATURDAY, April 29.

Let’s pitch in and clean up our roadsides for Spring!
