Weathering the Winter

winter imageHere are some “green” winter tips for our friends! 

  • In the event of a snow storm, please remember to shovel out your trash toter or leave it in an easily accessible location for your driver to pickup on your residential trash pickup day. Commercial businesses should also make sure their dumpsters are easily accessible to avoid a delay in trash or recycling pickup. 
  • Consider using non-toxic de-icing substances like clean clay cat litter, sand or fireplace/stove ash to prevent hazardous waste from chemicals. Chemical de-icers can be hazardous to your pets, trees, shrubs and our environment. 
  • If you have a wood burning fireplace, save the ashes in a tin instead of throwing them away. Cold wood ashes can be mixed in your compost to create a valuable soil amendment that provides nutrients to your garden! 
  • Stock up on rechargeable batteries rather than disposable ones for use in the event there is a power outage. 
  • Use electric snow removal products rather than gasoline powered ones. The electric products consumer more energy but they do not emit greenhouse gases. 
  • Heading someplace warmer and need to put your residential or commercial trash pickup on hold? Call Nauset Disposal at 508.255.1419 to put your account on vacation status or skip a pickup, please be sure to give us at least 24 hours notice! 

Don’t forget to keep us in mind for any of your winter projects. House clean outs, dumpster rentals, junk removal and special jobs are great things to tackle for those milder winter weekends. Give us a call at 508.255.1419 to schedule your next project.

4 Ways to Go Green this Holiday Season

eco-friendly-holidays

 

1. Make your own wrapping paper. Sounds crazy, we know, but most mass produced wrapping paper is not recyclable because of shiny coatings, foils and colors. Wrap presents in old maps, newspaper or kid’s artwork or a scarf {2 presents in 1!}. 

2. Buy energy saving holiday lights. Using LED lights to decorate, you can save your family up to $50 on your energy bills this holiday season. Did you know if everyone used LED lights for the holidays, the savings would be enough to power 200,000 homes for a year, according to one US Department of Energy study.

3. Shop and eat locally! Not only does your money stay here and go back into the local economy, you are reducing environmental impact, transportation costs are decreased and you’re encouraging local prosperity in your community. 

4. Recycle your Christmas tree. Each year, 10 million Christmas trees end up in the landfill. While your tree won’t fit in your recycling bin, Nauset Disposal offers a Christmas tree pickup program for customers. We’ll bring your tree to a grinding facility, where it’s turned into mulch. Just give us a call for details on the pick up schedule.

Happy Customers

“Cape Cod Theatre Company – Home of the Harwich Jr. Theatre has been a customer of Nauset Disposal for nearly a decade. I am so impressed with the reliable service your company offers. Our theatre presents a dozen shows a year and our needs for disposal pick-ups are often unpredictable;  especially during the busy summer months.  I have called, more than once, in a panic that our dumpster filled up overnight with the striking of a set, and that we were expecting a busy weekend to boot. I am always met with a friendly voice and a willingness to schedule an early pick-up. Your office staff and drivers are always polite, kind and helpful. Nauset Disposal has faithfully serviced a variety of our needs on a  year-round basis for many years. Your customer service is top-notch and we truly appreciate it.”
