January is a wonderful time of year to start a “good” habit", go on a diet, learn a new language, read a good book. It is a time of optimism and a time for “I can” statements. This year, along with the new gym membership and the kale, why not add reducing your waste to your list of resolutions? Reducing your waste (not waist) is easy and far cheaper than a gym membership.
To begin, commit to recycling bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard. These items are easy to identify and always recyclable at the Lebanon Recycling Center. Visit our “What Goes Where?" page for more information. If you are not sure if something is recyclable, ask one of our friendly staff at the Solid Waste Facility or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reducing your waste can be easy and fun. Using a decorative reusable grocery bag can turn heads while eliminating waste. In some coffee shops in the Upper Valley, a reusable coffee cup can save you money and keep your beverage hotter longer. Instead of buying a book, visit the Lebanon Library and take out a book; it's free! While you are there, you can purchase your landfill punch cards.
