Harrison Township Green Team Mission Statement

The Harrison Township “Green Team” was created December 2016 by the Mayor and Committee of the Township of Harrison. The Green Team is a group of appointed individuals made up of residents, active community volunteers, municipal employees, and various Township board and commission members. This team will review and evaluate sustainable initiatives and make recommendations to the Mayor and Committee regarding the feasibility of implementing these initiatives with the goal of creating a “greener”, more sustainable community. These initiatives will be sure to meet the present needs of its citizens without compromising the ability to provide for its future generations. This shall be achieved through the implementation of environmental practices and initiatives which will provide a healthy and sustainable Township and enhance the quality of life for our citizens.

The Harrison Township Green Team is working to improve the quality of life for all Harrison Township residents through the Sustainable Jersey Program. Information on Sustainable jersey can be found by visiting http://www.sustainablejersey.com/.
