Cranford has started a food waste composting program at the Conservation Center! Just drop off your kitchen scraps in the bin next to the office/shed at the conservation center, labeled "food waste." The posted image shows what's acceptable; collecting and dropping off scraps in plastic bags is ok too. You do NOT need a Conservation Center permit to drop food scraps.
The waste will be processed to generate renewable energy for the Rahway Valley Sewer Authority water treatment plant. Thanks to this program, you can now divert your food waste from landfills!

Take The Cranford Tree Survey

The Cranford Environmental Commission wants to get your opinion on trees in Cranford! Did you know that trees are a vital tool to reducing flooding and storm runoff? In fact, one large tree can manage more than 1000 gallons of rainwater from a single storm! They also improve air quality, increase property values, and contribute to neighborhood appeal. Survey takes about 5 minutes to complete Type your paragraph here.
