WYCKOFF, N.J. -- Wyckoff will is encouraging all residents and business owners to improve environmental practices on America Recycles Day Sunday.
Proper recycling habits can up to $100,000 in garbage disposal fees, according to the township.
Township officials are offering the following tips to help increase recycling and reduce excessive garbage expenses:
- Increase household recyclables by using the easy Single Stream recycling collections every other week. Place in one container all paper, plastic items numbered 1 – 7, (no Styrofoam) cans, glass bottles, jars and wax coated food cartons.
- Every Wednesday the Department of Public Works will pick up household appliances/metal bulk items such as residential room air conditioners, residential refrigerators/freezers, (with doors removed) and stoves. This collection is suspended during Leaf Collection. Call 201-891-7000 ext. 101 to request curbside collection.
- Recycle electronics like TV’s, computers, printers and DVDs. Bring them to the Recycling Conservation Center at 476 West Main Street.
- Put a lid on garbage containers – wet garbage weighs more so it costs more
- to haul away.
- If installing new carpet, ask the installer to take the old carpet away with them.
- Stop by Town Hall and pick up a NIFTY-FIFTY sticker for recycling containers.
- Donate appliances and used furniture.
