EAST WINDSOR, NJ — The Township has once again received Sustainable Jersey Silver Level Certification for their programs to go green, save money and sustain the quality of life.
This is the third time East Windsor was awarded the certification. The Township previously earned the certification in 2018 and in 2015.
East Windsor earned silver certification action points for many programs, including the creation of a Green Team, community outreach, emergency communications planning, municipal on-site solar system, farmland preservation plans, community garden, and more.
“This certification recognizes the Township’s pro-active efforts in community partnerships and outreach, composting and recycling, emergency management, natural resource, and farmland preservation, sustainable land-use practices, energy conservation, and furthermore enables East Windsor Township to be eligible for future grants and funding opportunities,” Mayor Janice Mironov said in a statement.
“We are extremely proud of the substantial achievements of our municipality and this prestigious statewide recognition, and the dedicated efforts of our many volunteers.”
East Windsor’s ‘Green’ programs such as open space and farmland preservation and tree replacement efforts have always been a priority of the Township, Mironov said.
The members of the East Windsor Green Team are Chairperson Ronald Balint; Mayor Janice S. Mironov; Deputy Mayor Peter Yeager; Council Member John Zoller; East Windsor Municipal Utilities Authority Executive Director Richard Brand; Dave Bahniuk; Michael Baskin; John G. Donnelly; Edward M.
