On Earth Day 2021, the City of Norwalk reminds everyone to Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle for a happier and healthier Earth.
“Happy Earth Day, Norwalk! On this 51st anniversary of the first Earth Day, we reaffirm our commitment to protecting the environment and taking action to limit the impacts of climate change. We have done so much over the last several years, and have taken huge steps forward, but we have a lot of work left to do,” said Norwalk Mayor Harry W. Rilling. “I thank Councilmembers Tom Livingston and Lisa Shanahan for their ongoing partnership and for taking a lead role on these efforts. They are advocates for all of Norwalk. I commend Tom, Lisa, and all of our residents and businesses that understand we have to do everything we can to protect our planet and natural resources for the future generations.”
The City of Norwalk has implemented numerous green initiatives and environmental policies over the last several years to help protect the environment. The City has demonstrated its commitment to green initiatives and caring for the environment through previous policy decisions and Mayor Rilling is doubling down on these efforts with future plans and programs:
“If we expect Mother Earth to take care of us, we have to take care of her. Every action we take – big or small – can make a real difference,” said Mayor Rilling. “This Earth Day and every day, I encourage residents to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Let us make sure that our children and grandchildren can enjoy fresh air and clean water. We only have one planet – let’s take good care of her.”
The City of Norwalk also encourages residents to continue Single-Stream Recycling. Below are some reminders:
