frontloaderWhen using the clothes washer, make sure you use the appropriate setting (small, large, etc.) based on the size load you are washing. To save even more water, consider purchasing a new front-load washing machine. They use as little as 16 gallons of water per use!

You should also repair any leaks in your kitchen or bathroom faucets as soon as possible. The cost to repair a leaky faucet is minimal compared to the cost of wasted water. Even a slow drip can waste 2,000 gallons of water a year.

Products like these can make their way to our water supply because sewers and septic tanks do not treat them. These materials should be disposed of by following the instructions on the product label, or by taking them to a Broward Household Hazardous Waste facility. Call the Broward County Waste and Recycling Services at 954-765-4999 for more information or  visit their webpage.
