Students and members of the Rutgers community helped out at Scarlet Knights Team Up to Clean Up event this past Sunday by picking up garbage and debris around campus.Caryn Washington, the assistant director of Rutgers Off-Campus Living and Community Partnerships, launched the Scarlet Knights Team Up to Clean Up pilot program in the Fall of 2016, as an initiative focused on cleanups after football games in an attempt to foster a cleaner environment, she said in an email.“Our philosophy is whether you are a commuter, an on-campus resident or an off-campus resident, we are all a part of this community and should work together to keep our community clean,” Washington said.Ashley Morris, a Service Day intern with Rutgers Off-Campus Living and Community Partnerships and a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore, reiterated that opinion.Team Up to Clean Up is very important because students live on and off campus, and considering that the off-campus area is so close to on-campus, it is important to keep our neighbors in mind, Morris said.“It reminds us to respect their properties and their homes just as much as you would want yours respected as well,” she said.Washington said that Rutgers Off-Campus Living and Community Partnerships teams up with volunteers and people such as Donna Caputo, the recycling coordinator for the City of New Brunswick, in order to make these cleanups possible.“It sounds simple enough, let’s go out and pick up litter.
