Energy Works and YOUR home!

Last week, Mayor Michael Nutter and the Metropolitan Caucus joined together to announce their joint launch of EnergyWorks, a comprehensive energy efficiency program for home and business owners in the Greater Philadelphia region. The program offers professional energy analysis and design services, and brings together all available rebates, tax credits and low-interest loans to make energy saving projects affordable. EnergyWorks will help plan and finance the retrofit of thousands of homes and dozens of major commercial buildings across the region, and will help meet Philadelphia’s Greenworks goals of reducing energy consumption in buildings by 10 percent, making energy upgrades to 15 percent of buildings and creating green jobs.

Another successful Weird Waste Day!

Thank you to all who came out for Weird Waste Day yesterday and brought electronics for responsible recycling! We surpassed the last event collection of 11,000 pounds!!
The electronics will be reused, refurbished and/or dismantled by EForce Compliance. This company is located right here in Philly and is committed to responsible recycling.
GRINCH toured their facilities and spoke with the owner/operators last year to observe their process.
GRINCH will continue to organize and run this event twice a year. We are thrilled that so many people participated and by doing so help to divert toxic metals from landfills and polluting our soil.
