The Clean Communities Act of 1986 establishes a funding source for clean communities programs around the State of New Jersey by placing a tax on fifteen categories of businesses that may produce litter-generating products. The Clean Communities Program Fund generates about $20 million each year and is disbursed each year to NJ municipalities, counties, state parks service, and the New Jersey Clean Communities Council, Inc.

The Middletown Township Clean Communities Program is responsible for roadside litter, roadside signs, signs on utility poles and coordination of clean sweeps throughout the Township in partnership with organizations such as Clean Ocean Action, Surfrider Foundation, and NJDEP Division of Water Monitoring and Standards-Clean Shores.
