Sustainable Jersey

The Township of Delran voted to participate in Sustainable Jersey in 2013.   Sustainable Jersey is a certification program for municipalities in New Jersey that want to go green, save money, and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term.   The Green Team was established by Resolution 2013-54 on May 28, 2013. The nine members were formally appointed by Resolution 2014-26 on February 11, 2014.  The Green Team began meeting the second Wednesday of the Month in February 2014.  Sustainable Jersey has established 17 categories of actions designed to encourage municipalities to become more sustainable.  To receive the bronze level certification a municipality must complete actions totaling 150 points in six different categories along with the completion of two priority actions and the mandatory action to create a Green Team.  Delran has received 80 points towards the bronze certification.  The Green Team presented its first annual report to the Mayor and Town Council at the October 14, 2014 work session.  A copy of the report is available on the Delran Green Team website:  www.delrangreenteam.wordpress.com
