Recycling begins with purchasing recycled products and products manufactured using renewable matierals or purchasing products using highly recyclable materials (Steel, Copper, Aluminum) DEC Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Composting
One of the biggest ways you can impact the world is with your wallet. Buying sustainably sourced and packaged products (less single use plastic) helps by preventing waste before recycling needs to occur. Americans throw away billions of pounds of clothing each year, shopping at thrift stores and in clearance sections is fun, affordable, and helps reduce clothing waste.
The Stop Throwing Out Pollutants (S.T.O.P.) Program is designed to provide area residents with a safe, environmentally sound method of disposal of the many hazardous materials found in the average home. By bringing such toxins as antifreeze, drain cleaners, and pesticides on any of the scheduled S.T.O.P. collection days, you and your family can make a significant contribution to the protection of our precious groundwater supply and the preservation of our bays and estuaries.
