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.
