Mayor Cory A. Booker, Acting Neighborhood and Recreational Services Director James Souder, and New Jersey Clean Communities Council Executive Director Sandra Huber announce the Eighth Annual "Gateway to a Cleaner Newark Community Cleanup" co-hosted by the City and the New Jersey Clean Communities Council.

More than 800 volunteers, including students from Newark schools, local businesses, and non-profits came out to clean up Newark's empty lots, sweep litter from streets and remove graffiti in an effort to "Slam Dunk the Junk." Partners in the event included Essex County, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, the Newark Downtown District, the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commissioners, the Greater Newark Conservancy, Bank of America, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Regional Business Partnership, Integrity House, Waste Management of New Jersey, Ace Environmental Services, Covanta Energy Corporation, Coca-Cola Bottling Company, PSE&G, and the Newark Public Schools.

Creating a cleaner and greener Newark has been a major goal for the Booker Administration, since taking office in July 2006. In addition to supporting clean-up projects like the "Annual Gateway Cleanup," the City created its first Environmental Commission in 2009, has backed environmentally-friendly and "green" construction measures in public and private development projects, promoted energy-saving weatherization programs for residents, and given out energy-efficient electric light bulbs.
