MAHWAH, N.J. -- The Mahwah Environmental Commission is asking residents to participate in "Makeover Mahwah" on Saturday, Oct. 1, by picking up litter -- and sharing the results on social media.
"If you stopped by the Mahwah Environmental Commission's booth at Mahwah Day, you saw a display featuring all the various forms of litter we have collected across Mahwah," the Commission noted in a Facebook post announcing the litter pickup day.
Residents asked then what they could do, and this event is one answer.
"Please join with your family, friends and neighbors to walk around your neighborhood or another location in Mahwah to pick up and throw out any litter you may find," the Commission noted.
"While it's wonderful to be outside looking for the latest Pokemon character to capture, why not look for the signs of the most notorious character we have in Mahwah: the Litterbug!"
The commission also wants folks to tag photos of their litter-collecting results with #makeovermahwah -- "to show the difference each one of us can make by simply taking a walk in our neighborhoods."
