With the winter months officially upon us, here are some small ways residents can help make an impact with excessive winter salt use!

We often try to make ice removal easier by using products like salt and sand to melt the snow and ice. Many people do not realize that these products are harming local waters and the animals that rely on them. When the ice and snow melt, the salt and chemicals flow into street drains that lead directly to rivers and lakes.

Leaf collection has officially concluded. Residents with leaves still at the curb are encouraged to bring their loose le...

What should you do with the Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) instead of placing it in the drain?

๐ŸŸ You can transfer the fats and oils into an old coffee container (or any container) this will allow the FOG to harden, seal it off and store until the container is full. Once container is full you can place it in the trash.
๐ŸŸ Remove as much fats, oils, and grease from pots, pans, and plates prior to washing them in the sink or putting in the dishwasher.
๐ŸŸ Or for proper disposal of larger amounts of cooking oil, visit the Brown County Material Recover Facility.

For more disposal information refer to https://www.browncountyrecycling.org/hmr-acceptable-material or https://www.newwater.us/fog.

Winter is coming! Ready to winterize those rain barrels?!

Freezing water can damage a rain barrel. When temperature falls below 40ยฐF, follow these steps to winterize your rain barrel.

1.Remove the Flexi-Fit diverter by removing the 2 screws, squeezing the sides, and pulling the diverter out of the downspout.
2.Completely drain the barrel making sure the water is being drained away from building, foundations, and walkways.
3.Cover the hole in the downspout with this winterization hole cover and replace screws.
4.Before storing, clean debris or sediment from the bottom of the barrel, diverter, and fill hose. Reattach the cap to the drain plug once the barrel is empty.
5.Turn the barrel over and store in your garage or basement.

Rain barrel maintenance guidance is also on our website, https://greenbaywi.gov/1355/Residential-Rain-Barrel-Program.
