The Westville Environmental Commission has been doing great work in the town of Westville for several years now. Our facility has partnered with them on several projects which have had a tremendous impact on the environment within the community. The leaders and volunteers of the Commission are friendly and easy to work with. Other Environmental groups within Gloucester County should look to model their programs after the Westville Environmental Commission.
