Decatur House is now recycling!
Nauset Disposal, whose motto is “Cleaning and Greening the Cape!” is collecting our trash and items to be recycled.
There are now recycling bins in all offices, in the kitchen, and in nursing. Though recycling within rooms is not required, residents are invited and encouraged to give their plastic bottles, glass jars and newspapers to housekeeping so they can deposit them into available recycle bins.
Other “green” initiatives include working with a local farm to turn our kitchen food waste into useful garden compost and adding an automatic beverage station to the main dining area to reduce our dependence on plastic bottles.
Thank you everyone for helping Decatur House become a “greener” community.
