|Keystone Vocational Program Renews Front Street Adopt-A-Spot Agreement|
(South Plainfield, August 2.) Mary Ann Williams, Program Director of the Keystone Vocational Program, has renewed Keystone’s Adopt-A-Spot agreement with the South Plainfield Clean Business Association for the next two years. She has been in charge of this program since the Keystone Community Residence first adopted Front Street in 1997. Keystone has been keeping the street clear of litter for over twenty years. A crew of six to eight residents plus supervisors will continue their weekly work to pick up litter, sweep the sidewalk and pull weeds from the curb.
In a separate contract with the CBA, Keystone has provided litter removal services at the Borough parks and municipal building spring through fall.
This Adopt-A-Spot is important to the downtown area. Studies have shown that people prefer to shop in a litter-free environment. The CBA is looking for more businesses to adopt spots in the commercial districts. South Plainfield Avenue and Oak Tree Avenue also attract litter.
