Green Township has received a grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to purchase home radon test kits. 
These test kits are FREE to residents and have been purchased from a certified radon measurement business.  Radon is a serious health risk. 
It is the second leading cause of lung cancer.  Radon is invisible and odorless and easy to ignore this potential hazard in our homes. 
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when uranium and radium break down in the soil and in rock formations. 
Radon gas moves up through the soil and finds its way into home through cracks in the foundation and openings around pumps, pipes and drains. 
If you are interested in receiving a free test kit, please contact Patty DeClesis at (908) 852-9333 Ext. 11 or email

On June 22, 2022, the Green Township Committee adopted Ordinance 2022-08
“Amending Sections 5-8.3, 9-4.c and 9-17 of the Green Township Code Regarding Dogs
and Permitting Leashed Dogs in EverGreen and Papa Park”.   Click here to view full ordinance. 
The Township Committee is pleased to allow leashed dogs in the parks; however, please be aware that leashed dogs
will be allowed on a trial basis and will be reconsidered by the Township Committee if the rules are not followed. 
Please be conscientious and considerate by picking up and removing all dog waste.  Please do not leave plastic bags in the park
or in the trash receptacles.  Also,  leashed dogs must be accompanied by a person over the age of 12 years and
must be securely confined and controlled by an adequate fixed length (non-retractable) leash not more than 6 feet long. 
No dogs are permitted to enter upon any of the athletic fields, playgrounds, or tennis courts within the Township of Green.
