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 wood stove is EPA approved.
