WOODBINE - Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce that the Borough of Woodbine has received a Certificate of Environmental Stewardship from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Environmental Stewardship Initiative.
This is in recognition of the Borough’s “voluntary and proactive measures to go beyond compliance in an effort to improve the environment and ensure a sustainable future”. The participation category was “Green Building Implementation”. This relates to the incorporation of energy conservation measures in all municipal buildings and facilities as a result of the Borough’s partnership with the BPU Clean Energy Program.
“We applaud NJDEP’s proactive stance with regards to stewardship and appreciate their recognition of Woodbine’s efforts. In addition to creating cost savings, this also maintains a sustainable environment for its residents and businesses,” added Mayor Pikolycky. “This builds upon our 2009 award as a sustainable champion community, New Jersey’s first rural champion.’
