The Arbor Day tree planting will follow on April 25. Volunteers for Team Up to Tidy Up will begin to assemble around 8:30 on the second floor of Wyckoff Town Hall on Saturday, April 4 for light refreshments and the distribution of assignments and materials. The first 250 volunteers to show up will receive free T-shirts and work gloves, and bags and other material will be available. The assignments will be distributed and the volunteers will start the cleanup at about 9 a.m. The work usually lasts about and hour and a half to two hours as members of the Wyckoff Township Committee and administration, Scouts, and environmental groups attack litter hand-to-hand in sections of the township not covered by either residential or municipal ownership. Partners in Pride, a local group with a long history in community cleanups, gardening, and beautification, started Team Up to Tidy Up with the help of municipal officials two decades ago when they Spring brings cleanup, Arbor Day celebration noticed that some parts of Wyckoff were heavily littered. Spring leaf cleanup by the Department of Public Works will begin in District 1 on Monday, April 6, and continue through the eight districts in sequential order. A second round is anticipated a week after the first sweep through the township. Leaves may not be placed in the roadway or within 10 feet of any storm sewer inlet along the street. Wyckoff officials note that they are obligated to comply with state storm water regulations. The leaves must be kept clear of branches so the intakes of the leaf vacuum trucks are not clogged. On Saturday, April 25, an eight-foot shade tree will be planted near the headquarters of Fire Company #1 and behind the municipal building, joining two trees planted last year and the year before last. The brief informal ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. Wyckoff Shade Tree Commission Chairman Don Smith and Environmental Commission Chair Brian Bigler encourage residents to plant trees in their own yards in honor of Arbor Day and start their own Arbor Day tradition.
