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.”

– Nina Schuessler, Producing Artistic Director at Cape Cod Theatre Company

Green Tips for Your Home this Fall

Walk around your house to ensure all windows are closed and locked. When air gets in your home through windows and doors, you are throwing away money via higher monthly energy bills. Sealing windows and cracks by using caulk to plug holes and weather stripping around drafty windows and doors will save your wallet.

Clear your yard and get those leaves out of there before the snow comes. If you let the leaves get buried, they will begin to decompose and soak up the moisture in your soil. This could turn into an insect problem or a weed problem, both of which can damage your yard.

According to FuelEconomy.gov, tests show that your gas mileage falls by anywhere from 12 to 22% in the wintertime. When the temp drops outside, your vehicle’s tire pressure is reduced and fuel efficiency goes down with it. Be sure to check your tires more frequently and inflate them to the proper level.

If Santa is good to you by bringing new electronics this holiday, remember not to toss your old ones out with the trash. Call Nauset Disposal to properly dispose of electronics or donate your old computer or cell phone to a local nonprofit organization.

Ben arrived at his office the same time that we arrived for their trash pick up. Ben noticed that it was an unusually heavy trash week with the container overflowing and windblown excess surrounding the container. In Ben’s mind he was going to drop off his bag and then return to the dumpster area to clean up the overflow. In the time that it took Ben to come back downstairs, the can was already emptied and the entire surrounding area was completely clean with no debris to be found and we had already driven off. Ben was “blown away”!
