More than 300 Volunteers Clean Up Overpeck Park

On April 27, 2014, More than 300 volunteers of the International WeLoveU Foundation performed the largest cleanup in the history of the Palisades Park Commission. The Hackensack Mayor Labrosse as well as Captain Bill of Hackensack Riverkeeper delivered special proclamations and awards to the foundation for the more than 100 tons of garbage collected.

The Hackensack Riverkeeper is a steward for the watershed and works to raise awareness about protection and defense of the ecosystem, river and wildlife habitat. Together with the Palisades Park Commission, they strive to prevent areas of Overpeck park and other regions from becoming dumping grounds filled with trash and debris.
