Sycamore Terrace Apartments Adds Recycling Dumpsters in Two Locations

Temecula, California (January 20, 2017) – For the first time since Sycamore Terrace Apartments was built, recycling dumpsters have been placed in their Temecula apartments. Starting this month, Waste Solutions will be supplying the Sycamore Terrace community with recycling receptacles. The staff hope that this can encourage residents to take part in the green movement and do their part in helping Mother Earth.

Instead of using the dryer, let your clothes dry naturally on a rack or clothesline. If you must use the dryer, use the lowest settings, and don’t use the longest setting.
Water in the bathroom and kitchen
If you have a roommate, plot out your shower and dishwasher schedule with them. Keep showers and baths short. To conserve water when flushing the toilet, place a glass jar filled with water into the tank. The jar displaces water when the tank is flushed, allowing you to save a jar of water with each flush.Read more on this article.
