As garbage collection specialists in Pitt and Lenoir County, we’re passionate about making sure the practices we use are green and our customers are too. Going green is more than sanitation and collection though, there are a lot of things you can do. With that in mind, here are 3 smart ways to go green.
1. Fix Water Leaks As Soon As Possible
It may not seem like a garbage matter, but fixing leaks is a great way to keep your home green. According to the EPA,
“The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.”
Toilets are especially prone to leakage, but because they are usually silent, the leaks can often go unnoticed. Contact a plumber or the facility maintenance at your complex to see if you can fix those leaks to save energy.
2. Destroy Energy Vampires
Don’t forget to unplug when you can. If you leave your phone or laptop chargers, DVD players, video game consoles, or other electronic devices plugged in when you’re not using them, you could be wasting energy. They can account for 10% or more of a home’s electric use, which makes them expensive to own. They draw power when in standby mode and can often have a display light. Stop these vampires by unplugging them when you’re not using them. Installing advanced power strips can also help with this problem.
3. Create a Trash Collection Plan
