ELIZABETH — A volunteer group of students from Kean University removed 47 bags of trash from Mattano Park in Elizabeth in a single cleanup visit last month. Of the total, 35 were filled with bottles and cans to be recycled. The group has returned to the park three more times since then. The extra debris washed in during Megastorm Sandy when the Elizabeth River overflowed its banks. The group was organized through the Kean Office of Student Leadership and the Union County Adopt-A-Park Program.
