Welcome to My Green Cranford, the official home of Cranford's Environmental Commission.  Explore this site for ideas for sustainable living or get involved in a "green project" and help make Cranford, New Jersey, and our planet a healthier place to call home.


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!
