The woodlands / wetlands that border Hillside Ave and also Memorial Drive, are in terrible condition. People have been dumping trash for years and the township does nothing. It needs an intense cleanup. There is just not all the trash on the side of the road, but garbage going back 50 yards. There's even trash in the stream. Everything from paint cans to fast food containers and liquor bottles. Some comes from uncovered garbage cans in the area, but most is just dumped there by people who don't want the trash in their cars.
 
 There is also trash in the adjacent rain basin, which is totally unneeded. Even during Sandy no water accumulated in it. It is bone dry. It could be made into a park or garden.

This area is a disgrace to Barnegat. Many people use Hillside Ave as a way to connect Rt 9 and W.Bay Ave. And the stream eventually runs into the bay's wetland.

Please contact clerk@barnegat.net and say: "Please cleanup the Hillside Avenue Woods."
