Reducing the amount of waste we create is the best way to take care of our community’s environment because it lowers the initial demand for raw materials. Using less also reduces the money the County must spend on Waste disposal services. In Rockingham County, garbage is hauled to the County Landfill, where it is buried. A tipping fee is charged per ton of disposed waste.
- Ways to Create Less Garbage:
Shop Smart: Buy only what you need, buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste, and when possible, buy recycled goods. All these methods help lower the use of new raw materials.
- Reduce Household Hazardous Wastes:
Avoid HHWs such as cleaning chemicals, garden sprays, and oil-based paints whenever possible. Try non-toxic substitutes such as baking soda and vinegar.
- Reduce Junk Mail:
Call or write advertisers and get your name off their mailing lists. You can call companies sending out junk mail or write: Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 3079, Grand Central Station, NY, 10163. Include in the mailing all names, your address, and signature. Ask that these names and this address be removed from all their mailing lists.
Use items as thoroughly as you can before throwing them away. This reduces what we send to the landfill and saves on hauling and disposal costs. When you are finished with items that are not worn out, pass them on to consignment or thrift shops, garage sales or charities.
