Spring Garden Tips
Reduce Spills

Grab that funnel and save money and the environment. According to the EPA, 17 million gallons of fuel, mostly gasoline, are spilled every year while refueling lawn equipment. Even small spills can contaminate our soil, water and air. As the gasoline evaporates it pollutes the air releasing vapors that can be hazardous to our health. And even a few ounces of spilled gasoline may be enough to contaminate a nearby well.
