Great article in the Ridgewood Patch about our Grand Opening Celebration, held November 19, 2011. It was a fantastic party, with hundreds of guests stopping by to see our beautiful new office in the Sealfon's building. After our ribbon-cutting ceremony, guests were treated to great food and children were entertained by a caricaturist and a magician. This is a very special group of real estate agents, and this Grand Opening Celebration exceeded everyone's expectations!!

We all know that doing our part to recycle will help save the environment. Did you also know that it can help the Township and its residents?
Wyckoff has launched a "Nifty-Fifty" program, with the goal of getting half of all homes to recycle. A 50% residential recycling rate will save Wyckoff taxpayers $100,000 per year!
Check out the "Nifty-Fifty" program here. Not only does it set out the guidelines for separating recyclables and trash, but it also offers great tips, such as:
-- donate your appliances or old furniture OR post on craigslist for FREE
-- put the lid on your trash can ... wet trash weighs more, so it costs more to haul away
-- the Township Recycling Center accepts old TV's, computers, monitors, keyboards, etc.
REMEMBER: Most of your trash and recyclables are going out to the curb -- how you separate them makes a big difference!
