The Environmental Commission is an advisory board which reviews all development applications that come before the Planning Board or Zoning Board of Adjustment. The Environmental Commission also makes ordinance recommendations to protect and preserve the environmental quality of the Township.


The Environmental Commission organizes the Township's annual Arbor Day celebration. The Arbor Day event is the culmination of teaching the students, K through 12, environmental awareness through a poster, poem and essay contest and other hands on experiences.

Mayor Gregory Myhre and members of the Environmental Commission toured the Northern Recycling Center in Lakewood on Friday February 22 to gain a better understanding of our recycling process.  Recyclable material from Ocean County is sorted at the facility Monday through Saturday.  More information on the trip will be posted on the township website along with additional information regarding the new recycling guidelines.

Additional information is also available on the Ocean County Website: http://www.co.ocean.nj.us/OC/SolidWaste/frmRecycleCoach.aspx
