This month is dedicated to education and emphasizing the importance of water, its quality, and threat of pollutants.
August is the last month of summer and chance to squeeze in a vacation before school starts back and the cooler weather of Fall begins. While you enjoy this warm weather and water activities around it, consider the impact you can make on water quality.
Water sustains all forms of life, all over the planet.

With all the awesome things to do during the summer, hydration is not at the top of our list. Until it ruins our plans for the day, that is. Dehydration is a serious issue during the warmer months and can turn into a life-threatening situation pretty quickly. It’s a major bummer to be down for the count instead of spending time with your family and friends.
Regardless of its significance, keeping hydrated is relatively easy. We’ve put together five simple tips to keep in mind all Summer ’18.

Keeping your recycling bin clear of any contaminants ensures that we keep recycling centers operational and able to produce clean bales of these products. This in turn makes it possible to create high quality, new recycled goods. It is all connected, and it all starts with YOU!

Probably only when it stinks or you’re dragging it outside to be collected. Maybe when your dog tears into it to find that one piece of bacon you didn’t eat. Otherwise, it’s most likely the last thing you’ll find crossing your mind. Don’t worry; that’s perfectly normal.
But, that’s not the case for the crew picking it up.
For them, it’s simply what they do, just another part of their daily routine. They start before the sun rises, as early as 2 am in some cases, and their routes can be long, leaving them little time with their families after work.
If you’re quick enough to catch them, you’ll find them lifting and dumping containers full of waste or recyclables over and over again no matter the weather. They carry no umbrellas for the rain and sometimes have to trudge through deep snow and ice to get to your cans. Not to mention how hot it can get during the summer months.
