It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Are you worried about your holiday utility bill or stressing about how you can make changes this season? We are here to help! Saving water, conserving energy, reducing garbage, and stopping sewer clogs can be easy.

From November 15 – December 23, we invite everyone to come visit the our “Home for the Holidays” displays and complete a family-friendly scavenger hunt (while supplies last).

Every family who participates will receive a gift from our staff to immediately start saving at home. Gifts go fast, so hurry in before they disappear! Tis the season to be jolly, so don’t worry about utility bill folly. See you here!
