11 Fight global warming Recycle & Compost! Recycling and composting are easy and efficient methods to save energy and reduce the production of greenhouse gases Just look at the stats for Napa alone In 2007, nearly 100,000 tons of materials were recycled or composted at the Napa Recycling & Composting Facility. By keeping these valuable resources out of the landfill, we decreased carbon dioxide emissions by 97,366 metric tons and used 562,393 million fewer BTUs of energy. To put it in perspective, this is enough energy to power all the houses in Napa for one month! Additionally, these savings are the equivalent of taking 21,075 passenger cars off the road and conserving almost 4½ million gallons of gasoline, helping to fight climate change and reduce our dependency on foreign oil.* Here are some easy ways to help: Recycle & Reuse at home & work Start a backyard compost pile Use canvas grocery bags Purchase products made of recycled materials *Information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s Waste Reduction Model (WARM), 11

All batteries Fluorescent lamps & tubes Items containing mercury: thermostats, thermometers, switches (e.g. pilot light sensors, blood pressure gauge, novelties such as maze games & talking greeting cards) Electronics: TVs, monitors, computers, cell phones, microwaves, etc. (see pg 15) Why is Universal Waste a Problem? U-waste contains a variety of hazardous and toxic materials including lead, mercury, and cadmium. U-waste is banned from the trash because toxic materials can be released, posing a risk to public health & the environment A TV or computer monitor contains 7 lbs of lead! Mercury and other substances released into the air and water are toxic to wildlife & humans. Exposure to mercury affects brain function and impairs brain development. The mercury from one fl uorescent bulb can ruin 6,000 gallons of drinking water. See page 19 for battery drop-off locations U-Waste Recycling Take u-waste to these local facilities.

17 RETHINK & REDUCE TOXIC WASTE Can the product be used by someone else? If you have an unwanted product that someone else could use - don t let it sit on the shelf! Take it to the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility where they will determine if it can be put in the Reuse Locker. Unwanted household hazardous waste is very expensive for the County to dispose. A better option for both your budget and the environment is to prevent the waste from the start. 1) Buy the right product for the job. There is no magic bullet! What do you want the product to do? 2) Buy the least toxic alternative. Many manufacturers are responding to consumer demands for alternatives. 3) Buy only the amount you need or can use up. Will you be able to use up the jumbo or bargain size product before it expires? 4) Store the product properly so it doesn t become unusable. Keep in a covered, dry, safe place. To Learn More: There are many resources on the internet that provide information about potential health risks of commonly used products and help identify less toxic alternatives. Washington Toxics Coalition (www.watoxics.org) is just one example. OUR WATER OUR WORLD Is a program that provides information about less-toxic pest management. Choose less toxic products for your home and garden at Napa County stores. Look for the "Our Water, Our World" symbol before you buy. Below are Napa County participating stores. Napa: Orchard Supply Hardware Van Winden Garden Center Zeller's Ace Hardware St. Helena: Central Valley Builders Supply Whiting Nursery Calistoga: Silverado Ace American Canyon: Mid City Nursery In each store look for: User-friendly Fact Sheets on common pests & less toxic ways to control them including product recommendations Tags on store shelves to help you find the less-toxic products recommended PRODUCT NAME Visit online: offers information about pesticide use and the impact of pesticides on the environment. Use the Ask the Expert feature on the web site and have your question answered by staff at the Bio-Integral Resource Center in Berkeley. 17
