Green Sustainability Chair Mark London gave some tips on what residents can do year round to start making Denville just a little bit more green.
- In the winter, schedule your trips out by distance. Make the longest trip first so that your vehicle warms up on your drive
- Brush your teeth first, before you take a shower. It brings hot water to the bathroom and your shower will heat quicker
- Clean out all containers before placing them in recycling. Food waste in jars and plastic cans cannot be recycled
- The DPW has also started recently taking old books. Bring books to DPW and a company will come and either recycle them or reuse them.
The Green Fair will be a family affair. With a clown and facepainting, the kids are more than welcome to learn about healthy things to do for their planet. On the other side of sustainability, Denville’s nurse, Peggy Grossman, will be on hand to discuss keeping healthy and where and when you can recieve Denville’s flu shot.
