- What is the Rain Check Rebate Program?
The Rain Check Rebate Program allows property owners to receive rebates for installing Rain Check approved stormwater management practices. Homeowners, businesses and nonprofit entities (including housing cooperatives and churches) can recoup some of the costs of installing practices such as: cisterns, green roofs, rain barrels, rain gardens, trees or permeable pavement. Even the practice of removing pavement may qualify. Rebate amounts are determined by: type of practice, projects costs and applicant type. To find out more about the program, visit the County website (click on headline to access the link).
- Brown is the New Green
Autumn is the perfect time to remind you that the County has a new yard waste collection policy in effect. When you’re doing yard work and gathering your leaves and other yard waste, remember to place it loosely in a heavy-duty reusable collection can with handles and a secure lid, or you may use a large yard waste paper bag. The collection cans must be clearly labeled “Yard Waste” or “Yard Trim” to ensure collection. Cardboard boxes ARE NOT acceptable containers. Also, remember limbs collected at curbside must not exceed four (4) feet in length and three (3) inches in diameter and must be securely tied in bundles. Bundles of limbs and bags of dry grass and leaves must weigh less than 60 pounds. Wet grass and leaves must weigh less than 25 pounds. For more information, call the County information hotline by dialing “311″, or, go to the County Click 3-1-1 website (click on headline to access the link).
