WE ALL LIVE DOWNSTREAM; THE RIVER BEGINS AT YOUR DOOR.
Even if you live miles away from a river or stream, you may be polluting
the water without even knowing it. Anything that enters a storm water system
is discharged untreated into the water bodies we use for swimming,
fishing and drinking water. Practice healthy household habits and keep
common pollutants like pesticides, pet waste, grass clippings and automotive
fluids off the ground and out of storm water. Adopt these healthy household
habits and help protect lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands and coastal waters.
Did you know improper handling and disposal of hazardous wastes
is against the law and can result in fines and expensive cleanup costs?
These wastes include pesticides, paint, motor oil, solvents, gasoline,
freon, antifreeze, batteries, cleaners, and many others. Help us keep
our community clean. Use proper and legal methods to dispose of any
hazardous wastes. Contact the local office of EPD at 912-264-7284
or KBGIB for further information.
Did you know scrap tires must be disposed of properly
according to local and state laws? Do not dump them on streets, roads,
highways or in waterways. It is also illegal to burn any scrap tires unless
properly permitted. Help us keep our community clean. Recycle your tires
with a business that is legally permitted to collect or transport scrap
tires. Contact us for more information.
