Blairstown Enhancement Committee

BEC Summer Sweep!

Our spring clean-up day fell prey to COVID-19, but now that New Jersey is on the mend, we thought it would be good to get back out there to help Blairstown shine!

The Blairstown Enhancement Committee is issuing a call for volunteers to show their hometown patriotism July 4 through 11 by participating in a summer clean-up event. A "Summer Sweep!"

Yes, there is always "sweeping" to be done, but there is always more. The idea is that we list "Jobs to be Done" around the town right here on Sign up Genius. Citizen Volunteers choose a task from the list they would like to tackle with their close friends and family in a safe and responsible manner.

If you don’t see something on the list, come up with your own clean-up idea and share the fruits of your labor.

No matter what project you tackle, be sure to take pictures of your group displaying your hometown pride and send them along to [email protected].

COVID-19 may have gotten us all down, but not out! Hang in there Blairstown! We got this!

Let me know when and I’ll be there. More fun to do it in a group.

Main Street Sidewalk Sweep (6)

Every year the sidewalks get weedy and full of dirt and gravel. For this job you'll need gloves, push brooms, flat shovels, dust pans, and some heavy duty garbage bags, which can be left in the DPW truck that will be parked in the center of town.

I would also like to offer my dumpster for the Vailstreet clean up

Are you good with a squeegee? You'll need one, plus a bucket with some water and ammonia. A rag will also come in handy to dry between wipes.
