- Edison Water Watch will offer advice and suggestions to the Township; and promote clean water initiatives and support healthy rivers, streams and public water supplies for our community and beyond.
- Edison Water Watch will host occasional forums, inviting guest speakers from the NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection; the US Environmental Protection Agency; Rutgers University and Middlesex County College; and environmental groups.

Say No to Plastic Bags!
The South Edison Community Association (SECA) is encouraging all Edison Township residents to end their use of plastic bags from supermarkets and other stores. Ask for brown paper bags at store checkouts or bring your own reusable bags when you shop.
The SECA will provide sturdy, reusable nylon bags to the first 1,000 residents who join our growing community effort.
Plastic bags are non-recyclable. These plastics end up in household garbage or become litter on our streets, parks and waterways. Switching to reusable, nylon bags would remove a significant amount of trash from Edison’s waste stream, thereby reducing our landfill dumping fees that every taxpayer ultimately pays.
Our “Choose to Re-Use” campaign mirrors similar campaigns from the N.J. Clean Communities Council and the N.J. Food Council, designed to educate and encourage people and families end single-use plastic bags.
The South Edison Community Association (SECA) seeks VOLUNTEERS to shop and delivery groceries to local senior citizens, veterans and people with disabilities who are sheltering-in-place at home during the current Coronvirus (COVID-19) crisis.
To assist our most vulnerable neighbors, we ask that willing volunteers be 18 or older; have a valid driver’s license and provide proof of insurance. If you wish to volunteer, please call, email or fill out our form!
