Less We Can

Peruse our external Less We Can site at http://lesswecan.com/ Learn about all of the ways NW Natural is trying to reduce our carbon foot print.

Recycle Everything I Can

Recycling

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will research and recycle all materials that are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community, making sure to not contaminate recyclables with non-recyclables.
