Keep spills from entering streets, gutters, and storm drains
Train all employees on these proper practices
When it rains, stormwater picks up trash, chemicals, and materials from landscaping services. Stormwater enters into our drainage system untreated eventually leading to our lakes, rivers, creeks and streams.
Use safer, more organic products that are biodegradable
Always read the label and follow the directions for proper use
Store yard chemicals indoors or in a shed or storage cabinet
Use chemicals sparingly and sweep up driveways, sidewalks and gutters
Never dispose of unused pesticides & fertilizers in the trash. Residents can dispose of unused pesticides and fertilizers at the City of Temple Hazardous Household Waste disposal event held every year on the second Saturday of October.
