An Important Note from Waste Management (FIWMD)
Reduce your trips to the Transfer Station by being smarter about what you bring to the island. Carry and use reusable shopping bags and coolers, and leave packaging – including store bags and shoe boxes – at the stores on the mainland.
Online shopping like Amazon, eBay, Walmart, BestBuy, and Overstock may be convenient, but all product packaging is having a costly effect on our waste stream and the environment. Store clerks will happily help you open your packages and be glad to recycle boxes, plastic wrap and foam packing materials for you.
We can make a change for the better by using online shopping less and leaving product packing material where you purchase your supplies.
