“Keep Wood-Ridge Beautiful”
elebrating fifteen years and going strong!

On behalf of the Keep Wood-Ridge Beautiful Committee and the Mayor and Council, I would like to thank all the volunteers who came out on Sunday, June 1st for our fifteenth annual clean up day. Over 100 volunteers participated. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of our environment and the impact of litter. Hackensack Street, Valley Blvd. the ramps on Route 17 together with our newest neighborhood Wesmont Station development were cleaned while flowers were freshly planted at the Library, Civic Center, Senior Center and Veterans Park. A shredding event was also held from 9AM -1PM in front of the Civic Center sponsored by the Bergen County Board of Health and the BCUA. Each participant was provided a tee shirt, gloves and cleaning utensils.

Each year a tee shirt art design contest celebrating the event is offered to students in grades 5-8 with the winner receiving a check for $50, compliments of the Wood-Ridge Mayor & Council. Ms. Gabriella LoPresti was awarded first place for her design and had her name displayed on the front of each tee shirt.

A special thank you to Shop-Rite Supermarket of Lodi, the Inserra family, Wood-Ridge Pizza and Lyndhurst Pastry Shop for their generous donations of all food items, Tullo Ice of Hasbrouck Heights for donating ice and the Bergen County Department of Health for the use of their cleaning utensils.

It was gratifying to see the shared efforts of many organizations in town including the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Knights of Columbus, WRHS students, Police Department Auxiliary, Fire / EMS Departments, DPW, businesses and individual families; all working together with enthusiasm and cooperation for the betterment of Wood-Ridge. Wood-Ridge is a special place to live, and it was certainly evident as friends and neighbors took pride in our community. I would like to encourage all residents and business owners to do their part to "Keep Wood-Ridge Beautiful" all year round by picking up litter and recycling. Set an example for all to follow!
