Ban Balloon Releases in Long Beach Township, NJ

The Jersey Shore Chapter is supporting an effort in Long Beach Township, NJ to ban balloon releases just like several other towns further south have done at the urging of the South Jersey Chapter.

Balloons are picked up on NJ beaches everyday and Long Beach Township is no exception. In fact, this town has some remote areas that are not walked or cleaned regularly so balloon litter is likely more prevalent there. The ordinance proposed will ban intentional balloon releases within the Township and places a $500 fine on violators. The ordinance passed on June 5, 2017.
