We are working hard to provide helpful information to our residents in order to continue to live green everyday, while also working towards StuartCo’s portfolio-wide goal of reducing waste by 10% in 2013. A blog reader commented on a recent blog post:

“I would suggest that residents be informed of how to recycle special items such as batteries, light bulbs, and electronic items.”

We agree! This blog post contains information regarding resources around the Twin Cities metro, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, LaCrosse, Wisconsin and Omaha, Nebraska.
