Pollution Prevention Tips

Pollution

  • Buy What You Use and Use What You Buy. In other words, if you only need three gallons of paint do not buy five gallons.
     
  • Read and Follow Label Directions. For example, if a pesticide label says to mix it at a maximum rate of two ounces per gallon of water, do not use four ounces.
     
  • Do Not Mix Chemicals. Other than as directed on the label. The chemicals could react resulting in a dangerous mixture that could give off dangerous vapors or even explode. In addition, mixing chemicals can make it more difficult and expensive to dispose of waste chemicals.
     
  • Rotate Product Using Oldest Material First.
  • Keep Containers Closed. It minimizes evaporation, thus saving product and reducing costs. It also prevents contamination from rain or other sources.
     
  • Ensure Chemicals Are Properly Labeled. Improperly labeled materials and wastes can result in accidents and/or increased disposal costs.
     
  • Ensure Containers Are In Good Condition. Old containers are subject to rust, cracking and leaking.
     
  • Dispose of Old Chemicals You No Longer Use. That old can of pesticides in the garage or the old drum of product in the storeroom of a business can end up being a major environmental problem.
     
  • Recycle/Reuse Solvents As Long As They Will Still Do The Job.

P2 WASH DAY TIPS

  • WasherUsing cold water instead of hot when washing clothes can reduce the energy used per load by up to 90%; and it usually helps your fabrics last longer.
     
  • When possible try to save energy and water by washing only full loads.
     
  • When drying clothes, try using a clothesline. The sun's energy is free.
     
  • Try to use a lower temperature setting for your dryer. You can save energy and help fabrics last longer.
     
  • Reduce drying time and energy by making sure that the exhaust vent is clear.
     
  • Clean the lint filter frequently. A clogged filter obstructs air flow and is a potential fire hazard.
