LYNDHURST, N.J. -- Community Clean-Up Day is set for Saturday, Oct 3, continuing a decade-long, semi-annual effort by residents to keep their hometown clean.Volunteers will gather at Town Hall Park (corner of Delafield Avenue and Court Avenue) to collect the necessary supplies, including gloves, rakes and garbage bags.

They'll also receive a t-shirt sporting the "Community Clean-Up" logo and hot chocolate to keep warm.

"We get a lot of Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops helping," said Theresa Cicero, who works in the Parks Department. "Anyone can volunteer -- senior citizens, adults, kids. It's great."

Buses will shuttle the dozens of expected volunteers to various locations, such as the NJ Transit parking lot and curbs along Ridge Road, beginning around 9 a.m.

"We go to places that get a lot of traffic and gather a lot of garbage," Cicero said.All volunteers get lunch and a goodie bag of sorts filled with an assortment of gifts after returning around noon.In years past, these have included a rain jacket, umbrella and a backpack with a Thermos.

The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 4.
