SOUTH BRUNSWICK – South Brunswick Police Detective Michael Pellino has received the annual Enforcement Award from the New Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC).
Along with making multiple arrests this past year, Pellino set an example in his community with his hard work and dedication to the South Brunswick Clean Communities Program. In April 2016, the local program led 456 volunteers to pick up 15,000 pounds of litter, according to a statement prepared by NJCCC.
“Our main objective is to catch those littering and educate them about the effects of their litter. They are sent a warning letter and anti-litter information,” Pellino said. “We are proud to be making a difference.”
The Enforcement Award recognizes individuals who develop and execute an enforcement strategy or program that will reduce litter and enforce solid waste laws.
“Detective Pellino has shown his commitment to educating others about various litter and solid waste laws, with tremendous dedication to his local program in South Brunswick,” said NJCCC Executive Director Sandy Huber. “He is the ideal person to win our Enforcement Award for 2016.”
