Team Up to Tidy Up
Team Up to Tidy Up is traditionally held in Wyckoff on the third Saturday in April. The first Team Up to Tidy Up Day was held in April of 1989, an outgrowth of the State Clean Community Grant program. Each year community groups such as the Girl and Boy Scouts, Chamber of Commerce, Partners in Pride, Lions Club, as well as school groups and numerous Wyckoff residents have turned out for a successful attack on litter. The tireless effort of community members has made Team Up to Tidy Up Day a successful tradition that we hope is great fun too!For further information on Team Up to Tidy Up Day, please call the Recycling Office at (201) 891-7000 ext. 118.
