If you’re doing some cleaning out make sure you hold onto items for clean sweep day. It’s so easy to just toss stuff into the garbage and not think about it, but it is really worth the space in a corner of your garage or basement to keep pesticides, herbicides, cleaning chemicals, paints and solvents set aside. By holding onto these items for your communities clean sweep day you will keep toxins out of the landfill and ultimately out of the ground water supply. Sometimes there is a charge for items you bring in, but it’s cheap compared the environmental impact of these toxins entering our drinking water supply.
