On Tuesday, Middletown Township was honored at the Sustainable Jersey Annual Luncheon for becoming recertified as a silver town! Sustainable Jersey is a program that provides municipalities, schools, and school districts with tools, training, and incentives to pursue sustainability programs in New Jersey. Municipalities must meet a minimum of 350 points to achieve silver status. Middletown is humbled for this recognition and very proud to work toward a greener and healthier township!
Middletown achieved Silver Level Certification in 2019 and Bronze Level Certification from Sustainable Jersey in 2010, 2013, and 2016.
