June 17: Catherine Avenue Restoration

Where a deserted house once stood, there is now a vacant lot filled with a significant amount of trash and debris that needs to be removed. Not only is this garbage covered lot an eyesore to the local residents, it can be converted to forest area once all of the trash is gone. This will take several cleanups to rid this area of all of the waste and recyclables, but once that is done MEVO can work on restoring greenery to this area. It is highly recommended you come prepared wearing clothes you can get dirty: work boots and a pair of gloves. In addition, bring lunch, lots of water and a rain poncho. We may be getting little showers. We will be cleaning-up rain or shine. We will meet at 9:30 AM at the end of Catherine Avenue in Mahwah, New Jersey 07430. The trash clean-up will go from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM. For questions, email Brianna Sheahan at brianna@mevoearth.org or call 201-316-4888. To RSVP, send an email to mevovolunteers@mevoearth.org with your name, age, phone number and the subject line of “June 17 Catherine Avenue.” You can also RSVP through our Facebook.
