REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
Reduce: We reduce the amount we use - we use less.
Reuse: We reuse what we already have – use again.
Recycle: We make something new from what we have already used and reused.
Here are some helpful tips on Reducing, Reusing and Recycling...
Reserve one day for your shopping and errands instead of making multiple trips all the time to reduce fuel and fuel emissions.
Did you know 1/3 of food goes to waste? (some say half). The first thing you can do is reduce your food waste by keeping better track of grocery items bought versus what is consumed when going shopping. Also eat leftovers before their expiration date.
Become a zealot about turning things off: the water (while brushing your teeth), the lights (when not in the rooms or being used), the electronics (turn off items that use ‘phantom energy’).
Check out garage sales and estate sales before shopping the retail stores.
Use old t-shirts for yardwork, vehicle cleaning, or even dusting or cleaning your home instead of papertowels or one-time use towels.
Shoe boxes can be turned into great storage for files, bills or even toys.
Recycle things you don’t want any more by donating them to local charities or non-profit organizations – old toys, clothes, furniture, decor, games, movies, books, and tools.
Recycle your cell phone. Visit our Recycling Programs webpage for information on Advance Disposal’s Cell Phones for Soldiers program.
