If you frequent the Marlboro Recreation Center for basketball or other activities, you may have noticed our new water bottle filling station. This project was spearheaded by the Marlboro Green Team who applied for and received a $2,000 Sustainable Jersey grant. It is our hope that this addition encourages residents to bring and refill their reusable water bottles helping to reduce to reduce plastic waste. Please join me in thanking the Marlboro Green Team, Chaired by Adrianne Spota, for their efforts and that you will enjoy the new water bottle filler during your next visit to the Recreation Center.
