Improving Air Quality
Tips on how you can help improve your community’s air quality:
Reduce vehicle emissions
• Carpool, ride your bike, walk, or use public transportation whenever possible.
• Combine trips when running errands.
Break idling habits
• Turn your vehicle off when waiting for your kids after school.
• Go inside of a restaurant instead of using the drive-thru.
• Avoid warming your car up before leaving the house during winter months.
Learn before you burn
• Contact the health department for a burn permit and notify your local fire department before burning.
• Compost or chip your yard trimmings instead of burning them.
• Take yard waste to the landfill if you don’t compost at home.
• Make sure your woodstove is EPA approved.
