The Green Wyckoff Business Recognition Program recognizes local Wyckoff businesses for their pledge to implement environmentally sustainable best practices. If you would like to become a Wyckoff Green Business, please download the application and checklist of action initiatives and email back to Denise Capparelli.  You must complete at least TWO (2) sustainable actions in each of the categories on the checklist to be certified.
