How to Reduce Memorial Day Party Waste

recycling monroe ctWill you be throwing a Memorial Day party this weekend?  Hosting a BBQ with friends and family is a great way to welcome the unofficial start to summer.  However, it’s also important to keep your environmental foot print in mind. Here are a few tips to help you reduce Memorial Day party waste.

Tips to Reduce Memorial Day Waste:

  • Avoid Plastic Plates & Utensils – Plastic plates and utensils might make for an easier cleanup, but they also add to your waste. You can save money and help the environment by using reusable plates and utensils when hosting your party.
  • Avoid Paper Invitations – Send electronic invites or call and invite your friends and family via word of mouth. Avoiding paper invites can help reduce waste.
  • Get Crafty – Instead of buying balloons and disposable decorations, use items around your home. Add red and blue food coloring to different clear flower vases to the perfect eco-friendly table centerpiece.
  • Make it a Pot Luck – Have your guests each bring a dish! This will help make party prep easier for you, and you won’t run out of dishes when cooking.

Remember — All customers will be picked up one day later than their regular trash & recycling removal day for the Memorial Day holiday.  If you have any questions about changes to your regular pickup schedule, visit our website or give us a call at 203-334-1660.
