Page 10 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • March 4, 2009 Waldwick The Borough of Waldwick is planning to add cardboard to the list of items recycled by the municipality. Borough Administrator Gary Kratz explained that cardboard was not included in the borough’s original list of recyclable items because the program had been targeted to remove as much weight as possible from the waste stream to avoid tonnage-based costs at the local landfills. Bergen County recently mandated that all municipalities add cardboard to their lists of materials that will be accepted from the public for recycling. As a result, a collection area for cardboard will be added to Waldwick’s depot, which is located behind the department of public works garage on Industrial Way. Kratz noted that several residents have asked for the borough to collect cardboard over the years. Residents will be required to bring their cardboard to the depot. All types of corrugated cardboard will be accepted. The council must make a further determination on whether the borough will be able to accept other types of cardboard, such as cereal boxes. Once the cardboard is collected at the depot, it will be forwarded to a market for disposal. Asked if the borough might benefit financially from the arrangement, Kratz pointed out, “We could gain a few dollars, but all forms of paper recycling are not bringing in much money.” Borough will soon recycle cardboard New police officer named David Passaretti, a life-long resident of Waldwick, has been sworn in as the newest member of the borough’s police department. He attended Waldwick’s public schools, and graduated in 2006. While in school, he was captain of the high school football team and a member of the National Honor Society. Before being hired by the borough as a police officer, he was in his third year at Ramapo College and a dispatcher with the Ho-Ho-Kus Police Department. He is pictured with his family members and Waldwick Police Chief Mark Messner. Arbitration changes (continued from page 5) Allendale joined Wyckoff in endorsing the statement that “the taxpayers have had enough and Governor Corzine should show leadership and fix this broken State of New Jersey arbitration where state appointed arbitrators can grant excessive salary increases which increases taxes with the effect of an unfounded state mandate in one of the worst economic times in history.” The endorsement, however, was not a reflection on the members of the Allendale Police Department, who won praise at the same meeting. Three Allendale officers, including Sergeant Joseph Carey, Patrolman Terrence Lawler, and Detective John Mattiace, were decorated at a ceremony in Ridgewood earlier in February for their assistance in rescuing a kidnapping victim and apprehending the kidnappers. The two kidnappers, transients living within the borders of Allendale, had broken into a Ridgewood man’s lodgings, beaten him up, taken money, and then took him to Harriman State Park in New York where they beat him up again, took his clothing, and abandoned him on a wooded trail. Local police rescued the man, who had reportedly owed the perpetrators about $100. The two kidnappers remain in the Bergen County Jail where they have been since their arrests in mid-July. Ridgewood Detectives William Hemmer and Douglas Henky, together with the three Allendale officers, Bergen County’s Sergeant John Fisher and Sergeant Robert Farulla, and New York State Police Sergeant Steven Huff all received the Exceptional Duty Medal. Barra also praised the Mahwah Council for asking for a reduction in the mandatory local contribution to public libraries, and said that libraries should submit need-based budgets to the local councils and committees as other departments do, rather than receive state-mandated increments of taxpayer money.
