April Environmental Tip of the Month

Earth, Air and Water are absolutely essential to life. Here are three quick tips to honor all three:

Clean Air: Painting your house? Use a latex paint. Oil-based paints release hydrocarbon fumes.

Clean Water: Never pour anything especially waste oil or leftover lawn chemicals into a storm drain. It will end up in the nearest stream.

Clean Land: Don't put hazardous materials in the trash. Save paints, pesticides, lawn chemicals, car batteries, waste oil and similar materials for your local household hazardous waste collection day.
