  • Take shorter showers.  Use a kitchen timer if you need a reminder.
  • Use a dishwasher instead of washing dishes by hand.
  • Run dishwashers and clothes washers only when completely full.
  • Never pour medicine or hazardous
    chemicals down the toilet or sink. The Sharon DPW has a Hazardous Waste Disposal Day once a year, where you can dispose of most materials.  Medicine can be disposed of at the Sharon Police Dept.
  • Fix leaks around the home.  Small leaks in faucets and toilets waste hundreds of gallons of water a month.
  • Upgrade to water efficient toilets, clothes washers, showerheads, and faucets.
