TAKE THE PLEDGE!

For the 12th year in a row, towns across the country will be taking part in the Wyland's National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation. We're encouraging Hillsborough residents to take part in the challenge again. In 2022, Hillsborough residents conserved 5.6 million gallons of water through pledges they made to change in their daily lives. They reduced their number of single-use plastic water bottles by 12,802, and saved $71,277 in consumer costs.

Help Hillsborough be the most water-conscious town in America by taking the short pledge at WWW.MYWATERPLEDGE.COM. Your goals can be as simple as taking shorter showers or fixing leaky faucets. Taking the pledge can also have you entered to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes, including having your utility bills paid for a year!

Hillsborough has been Silver-Certified through the Sustainable Jersey Program for 9 years!

How Can You Save Water?

Conserving water isn't just about taking shorter showers and limiting when you water your lawn (though it definitely helps!)

Find out how you and your family can save water by clicking through the tabs below.

Did you know? An idling car wastes up to .5 gallon per hour; a medium-duty truck may waste even more. While individual episodes may be small, the cumulative impacts of idling are large. For everyday drivers, the best way to reduce idling is to simply turn the key when stopped for 10 seconds or more, except in traffic. Tailpipe emissions contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone, which can damage lungs, especially for children.

Hillsborough Township Now has Our Very Own Electric Vehicle Charger!

On August 3rd, Hillsborough Township Mayor Shawn Lipani cut the ribbon on a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station. Located at the Municipal Complex, the charging station was installed thanks to the “It Pay$ to Plug In Electric Vehicle Charging Grants Program” grant that was awarded to the township in the amount of $8,000. 
The two port Level 2 EV charging station by ChargePoint is located at the front (main) parking lot at the Municipal Complex that is marked exclusively for that purpose.

The rate for charging electric vehicles at the Municipal Building is $1.50 per hour for the first three hours with no fee for parking. After 3 hours, the charge will be $1.50 per hour for charging and a $5 fee for parking.
