Yes, we can. A green shopper shops with the Earth in mind. That means buying products with recycled content, less packaging or very little waste. A green shopper would probably buy rechargeable batteries for new toys, instead of the single-use kind. Or they might give gift certificates for time and talent or tickets to an event. These gifts create very little waste, and keep on giving after the holidays.

Huntingdon County does not have an adopted Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance (SALDO), therefore the County reviews the plans based upon the locally adopted municipal ordinance. While all municipal plan submission procedures are different, it is recommended that the applicant contact the municipality that the property is located. Typically, one copy of the plan will be forwarded to the county with a completed county SALD application (including the municipal signature and land owner signature), plan review fee, and any other required information that can include a post-construction stormwater plan (PCSM) and/or an Erosion and Sedimentation (E&S) Control Plan. Plans will be reviewed within 30 days of a complete submission and the review letter will be forwarded to the applicant, plan preparer, and municipality. You can review the entire County Subdivision/Land Developent Plan Review Policy here: http://www.huntingdoncounty.net/Dept/Planning/Documents/Subdivision%20Review%20Policy%206_19_14.pdf
Yes, you can. Many businesses send you advertising in the mail that you didn't request. This mail is called unsolicited advertising, but most of us refer to it as junk mail because we throw it away (or recycle it) as soon as we get it. You can reduce the amount of junk mail you receive by sending a request to have your name removed from mass mailing lists. Be sure to include the names of all members of your household and your address.
Send information to the following address:
Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 9008, Farmingdale, New York 11735
