The meeting will be held at the Ocean City Free Public Library in Room 110 at 12:30 p.m.
Ralph Cooper, of the Upper Township Green Team, will provide an overview of their efforts in recent years, current projects and how the Sustainable Jersey and Sustainable Schools programs are supported in the area with the help of the Atlantic-Cape May Regional Hub.
Joe Clark, the Ocean City Green Team representative, will also speak.
Cape May County Recycling Coordinator Lynn Crumbock will provide an overview of the county’s recycling activity.
The state’s ban on single-use plastic bags and polystyrene food containers, which will go into effect on May 4, will also be discussed.
