New Jersey Clean Communities Council Recognizes Stanley Witherspoon with Public Works Award

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – June 16, 2016 – Stanley Witherspoon, recycling collections manager at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA), has earned the “Public Works” Award from the New Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC).

The ACUA protects waters and lands from pollution by providing responsible waste management services. Through the Adopt-a-Road program, the company gathered 1,672 volunteers to clean 392 miles, providing all the coordination and necessary equipment for 394 cleanups of county roads, schoolyards, and parks.

Witherspoon has worked for the ACUA for more than 20 years as the collections manager of recycling.

“Our goal is to educate the public about the do’s and dont’s of recycling and waste management and how our collective efforts can better the future, not just in Atlantic County, but statewide,” Witherspoon said.

The Public Works Award is presented to a public works employee who, in addition to many other responsibilities, has developed a comprehensive, broad-based litter abatement program to enhance the community.

“We are so grateful for the hard work of Stanley and the ACUA in keeping Egg Harbor Township clean while consistently giving residents opportunities to get involved,” said NJCCC Executive Director Sandy Huber.
