Paper shredding and Humus sale 4/14/18 – and your concerns

Paper Shredding and Humus sale 4/14/18. What a gorgeous day! There was a steady stream of cars bringing papers for shredding. IF YOU MISSED THIS  – please look below for the link > the next BCUA sponsored free paper shredding is on 4/29/18 in Paramaus. HP Environmental Commission Chair Peter Ardito and I enjoyed meeting and talking with residents who came to the table to sign up for Humus ($20/2 cubic yards – DPW to deliver – call Borough Hall at 201-768-1700 or stop by to place an order this week).

The topics of resident concern that were brought up to us fall into four (broad) areas; 1) litter – management, responsibility, 2) trees – management, replacement, 3) curbside recycling, and 4) vegetative waste (and branches) – management, communication w DPW. Please know that these concerns have been and will be discussed at the monthly EC and Green Team meetings — and that they have been conveyed to Mayor and Council. We too want a clean, green and sustainable town and are working toward this. Our Mayor and Council want this too and we need to work together to make it happen. Council meetings are on the second and third Mondays of each month at Borough Hall at 7pm and are open to the public. Please consider attending a meeting to give voice to YOUR local environmental concerns; and consider joining the Green Team to help make constructive change in our community. Email the Green Team directly at, PM or reply on Facebook >> our next meeting is Wed, May 2nd at 7:30pm.
