Investors Bank Renews Adoption Agreement for Metuchen Road

Carla Rocha, Assistant Branch Manager of Investors Bank at 2449 Plainfield Avenue, has renewed the branch’s Adopt-A-Spot agreement with the South Plainfield Clean Business Association. A crew of six or more employees will continue to do quarterly litter cleanups along Metuchen Road from Belmont Avenue to Oak Tree Avenue. Metuchen Road has been legendary in the Borough as an illegal dumping ground. Dumping decreased after the road was completely paved to the Edison border, but extra traffic brings extra litter. The stretch between Oak Tree and Belmont Avenues is particularly busy, and litter accumulates quickly. Investors Bank first adopted this roadside in 2013. Then Branch Manager Miguel Carvalho was driving that road every day on his way to work. After participating in an Adopt-A-Spot cleanup with the South Plainfield Business Association (of which Investor’s Bank is a member), he arranged for the branch to join the CBA and applied to enter the Adopt-A-Spot program. The branch is committed to the program. After Mr. Carvalho left, Ms. Rocha took over organizing the employees. The spot is monitored weekly to see if additional work is needed between cleanups. The CBA is looking for more roadside adopters. The rest of Metuchen Road and the length of South Clinton Avenue are available for adoption. For more information about the Adopt-A-Spot program, contact the Clean Communities Coordinator at (908) 226-7621 or e-mail atempel@southplainfieldnj.com
