Sustainable Andover

Sustainable Jersey is a statewide certification program for municipalities that want to go green, save money, and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term. Andover Township has joined this initiative and formed a Green Team comprised of volunteer community members. Based on the team’s efforts and a long history of environmental best practices by our township’s administrators, employees, resident,s and volunteers, Andover Township has recently earned a Bronze level certification through Sustainable Jersey. We are looking for more members to help us continue our township-wide initiatives that help create a more environmentally sustainable community for all of our residents to enjoy.
