Waste Reduction Week


Reducing our dependency and switching to cleaner, renewable fuel systems is important for protecting the environment.

Here are some things you can do to make a difference:

  • Take the bus, ride your bike or walk to work.
  • Try carpooling—not only to work, but to your child's sporting events, lessons, etc. Carpooling with one other person cuts emissions and gas costs in half.
  • If you have no other travel option, maintain your vehicle and get regular tune-ups. It not only increases fuel economy but also reduces air pollution.
  • Turn off the engine and avoid idling.
  • Coordinate your trips throughout the week.
  • Check your tire pressure often. Under-inflated tires can increase fuel consumption.
  • Use a block heater in the winter and set it on a timer that will turn it on an hour or two before you start driving.
  • Avoid using your air-conditioner unless absolutely necessary.
