Zero Waste Challenge


How do you think you’d do trying to produce zero waste? Nauset Disposal challenges you to give it a try for three days to see just how little waste you can actually throw away. Here are some helpful tips to get started. Make sure you let us know how you do so we can share with our other challengers!

1. Turn your trash can into a compost bin and turn your compost bin into a trash can. You’ll be encouraged to compost as much as possible and throw away as little as possible. Don’t have a compost bin? Visit our friends at True Value to see what they have in stock!

2. Welcome alternatives to disposables. Use reusable bags for your shopping and reusable rags for your kitchen. Swap sandwich bags with reusable containers.

3. Baking some fall goodies? When you’re done, open your oven up to cool it down while warming up your house.

4. Reuse single sided printed paper for lists and when buying new paper, choose recycled and packaged in paper.

“Thank you Nauset Disposal for all your help in getting rid of all of the things in my Grandmothers home. It was very hard going through all of her things and determining what to get rid of. Your staff was extremely compassionate, supportive, and really took the time to help me determine what my needs actually were. You even tried to help me save money, and evaluated exactly what my needs were in getting rid of things. When the guys came to get rid of everything they actually acknowledged that my grandmother had passed and were extremely sympathetic. Thanks Nauset Disposal, I will tell everyone I know to use you when they need to clean out their home!!”
