Ditching Disposables Canvassing Day launched in Lambertville


The Lambertville Environmental Commission (LEC) will canvas the City of Lambertville Nov. 10, beginning at 11 a.m.

Volunteers will knock on the doors of every household in the City of Lambertville for the purpose of educating residents about the city’s plastic ordinance, which will go into effect on Jan. 1, underscoring the importance of minimizing consumption of single-use plastics.

The members of the LEC are passionate about educating residents about the harmful effects of single-use plastics on the environment.

In addition, volunteers will assist the city in providing residents the opportunity to sign up to receive City alerts electronically, via email and text. Residents should expect to receive written literature and promotional collateral on Nov. 10.

The canvassing program is part of the Ditching Disposables initiative.

Earlier this year, the City of Lambertville Environmental Commission was awarded a $20,000 Sustainable Jersey grant funded by the PSEG Foundation. The grant awards fund a range of projects including green infrastructure, park restoration, single-use plastic reduction campaigns, rain gardens, environmental resource inventories, creative placemaking, green team capacity building and more.

The Lambertville Environmental Commission, chaired by resident Liz Magill Peer, sought this grant to support its Ditching Disposables initiative.
