Going green is getting easier

 Last year, Collingswood residents recycled plastics labeled #3 thru #7 by voluntarily hauling plastic refuse to the dumpster behind the Bike Share Garage. These efforts kept many yogurt cups, battery packages, milk and juice caps, take-out packages, and toys out of area landfills. Well, giving the planet a break just got easier. Residents can now leave their #1, #2, #4, #5, and #7-plastics curbside! Residents can continue bringing #3and #6-plastics to the dumpster behind the Bike Share Garage. Thanks to singlestream recycling, glass, paper, metals, and plastics can be left together – in the blue recycle bins – at the curb. If you need a few more bins to accommodate your recyclables, call Public Works at 858-0533. To help reduce electronics in our waste stream, e-waste – TVs, computers, and monitors – must be disposed of properly (it’s the law). Collingswood operates an electronics drop-spot – behind the Public Works Garage at 713 Atlantic Ave – to encourage year-round e-recycling. To learn more about these initiatives, visit the “Green Connections” page at collingswood.com.

Around the Towns What’s Your Take?

• What’s On caught up with GREG and MELISSA DZICZEK, of West Collingswood Heights, strolling Newton Lake Park with their 11-week-old, Clara. Greg admitted that he has been known to indulge in “soft pretzels ... and wine and cheese.” Melissa’s weakness is “definitely chocolatechip cookies.”

Spend the evening of Fri Apr 8 sniffing, swirling, and sipping wines at the Collingswood Community Center.

What is your favorite indulgence?

• Best friends and co-workers at Westmont’s Pat’s Pizza, EMIL VATSEV and ASHLEY MOHRING agreed that they both enjoy moscato wine and cheese. Ashley added, “The stinkier the cheese, the better!”

• The warm weather can’t arrive soon enough for AUDREY (8) and SARA NELSON (3). Audrey’s favorite treat is swimming; her little sister loves ice cream and Popsicles. Their mom, BETH NELSON, relishes “a glass of wine after dinner.” She added, “My husband and I have been enjoying Cupcake Vineyards lately.”

• KAITLIN RIVA was spotted enjoying a picnic with her aunt, LISA PETTINELLI. Kaitlin explained that her favorite indulgence is french fries. Lisa, a Haddon Township resident, answered, “Wine ... I love a good riesling and I also love visiting local wineries, like Tomasello, to try new things.” Lisa reported that her four-year-old son, DOMINICK, loves “chocolate donuts with sprinkles.”

• RICHARD ROSSI and ANNA VARGAS were found enjoying a brisk walk with their 16-monthold, LYLA. Anna has been known to indulge in “chocolate and wine” from time to time. Richard, on the other hand, replied, “Forget the chocolate, just give me the wine!” Lyla’s favorite indulgence is watermelon.

• Pat’s Pizza’s UMIT CEYLAN admitted that he loves chocolate. Collingswood resident JOHN LIEZE reported that he turned 21 a few weeks ago and now he enjoys an occasional Rolling Rock. Happy Birthday, John!

This Job Fair could be a key stop on your career path. Be sure to dress for success and bring copies of your updated resumé. The event, to be held in conjunction with the Camden County One-Stop Resource Center, is expected to attract approximately 100 employers. Representatives will be on hand to offer jobseekers valuable advice on crafting resumés and navigating the job market. Representatives from the One-Stop Resource Center, along with local salon professionals, will provide wardrobe advice and free makeovers to guests who wish to update their look. Employers are urged to take part in this free event by registering at camdencounty.com. For further information, contact Debbie Sutherland at 968-4212 or e-mail dsutherland@camdencounty. com.

 PFLAG Collingswood (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), as part of its ongoing Anti-Bullying series, will host a presentation by John and Kim Otto, PFLAG members, on Mon Mar 28, at 6:30pm.

From marching in the streets, to testifying before the NJ Senate, the Otto’s story illustrates how a determined grass-roots effort can bring about social change. A support-group session will follow the speakers. PFLAG Collingswood generally meets the 4th Monday of each month at the Collingswood Public Library (771 Haddon Ave), from 6:30 to 9pm.

Curing childhood cancer, one cup at a time

 When Alexandra “Alex” Scott decided to erect a lemonade stand in the frontyard of her Wynnewood PA home in 2000, she visited her local Superfresh with her mother to purchase lemonade and cups. After Alex and her mom explained to the manager that her cart was loaded with supplies for her lemonade stand, which she was holding to raise money to help kids with cancer, the manager donated the supplies. Inspired by Alex’s story, and emboldened by the loss of a co-worker’s son to neuroblastoma in 2005, employees at Westmont’s Superfresh are gearing up to host their fifth annual Customer Appreciation Day and Chinese Auction to benefit the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The extravaganza will be held on Sat Apr 2, between 10am and 2pm. The store is located at 650 Cuthbert Blvd E, Westmont. Be sure to wear your lucky socks! Tickets will be sold in batches of 18 for $5. More than 40 filled baskets, gift cards, and gift certificates will be awarded to lucky winners.

Souper bowls!

 The students at Haddon Township High School will host their third Empty Bowls Charity Dinner on Fri Apr 1, from 5:30 to 8pm, in the school cafeteria. During this event, attendees will enjoy a meal of soup and bread. The soup will be served in handmade ceramic bowls. Following the meal, guests will be invited to take their bowls home to remind them of the bowls that remain empty throughout the world. The first two Empty Bowls Charity Dinners, held in 2007 and 2009, raised over $9,000 for the Food Bank of South Jersey. They also helped raise awareness of the poverty and hunger which exists in South Jersey. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults and can be purchased at the door. If you would like to make soup or bread for this year’s dinner, please e-mail Karen Kiick at kkiick@ haddontwpschools. com.

Tax-time tips

› Taxes got you down? Never fear ... AARP is here! The AARP Tax-Aide Program, in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service, is providing low- and moderate-income senior citizens with free assistance throughout tax season. AARP Tax-Aide is a free service provided by volunteers who are trained to answer questions and prepare Federal and New Jersey income tax returns, Tenant Rebate forms, and Property Tax Reimbursement forms.

Be sure to bring a copy of last year’s return, all relevant tax statements, receipts, and forms, and a Social Security card or SSA-1099 form for each taxpayer and dependent in your household.

No change? No worries!

 Look around ... historic Collingswood has welcomed a modern amenity to its shopping district. Ten new parking kiosks – nine along Haddon Ave and one in the soon-to-open LumberYard parking garage – will replace the traditional coin-eating machines the heart of the business district. “We have the enviable ‘problem’ of tight parking in Collingswood, which means people are still coming to shop, dine and do business in our town,” said Collingswood Mayor Jim Maley. “Parking advances like kiosks and the garage will make it easier for people to come and enjoy Collingswood,” he added. The kiosks use a pay-and-print system in which users print a parking slip to display on their dashboard. Parking rates will be $.50 per hour – for a maximum of three hours – and the kiosks will accept bills, coins, and credit cards. “This new system is extremely userfriendly,” said Collingswood Police Chief Richard Sarlo who oversaw the project. Traditional coin meters will still be in use in Collingswood past Powell and Fern Aves and in the Borough Hall and Atlantic Ave lots, underneath the Speedline. The Borough anticipates the new parking garage, part of the LumberYard Condo development, will open in this spring and add more than 100 public spaces to the mix. Bargain Alert: There will be a rate incentive to encourage visitors to park in the LumberYard garage rather than along Haddon Ave.
