Information on reducing Courthouse Square’s ecological footprint and helping the Chesapeake Bay can be found here. Check back often for more great resources. If you are interested in serving on a possible CSQ Green Committee, please tell a board member!
Courthouse Square HOA dues include recycling service every other Thursday morning. Recyclables include glass, steel, aluminum, paper (phone books, newspaper, junk mail, cardboard, etc.) and plastics (“triangle codes” 1-7).
WILDLIFE and BAYSCAPING
Planting native flowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees requires less watering and fertilizer than their non-native counterparts. Natives also help feed and shelter more of the local wildlife, including dozens of local bird species: cardinals, bluebirds, blue jays, Carolina chickadees, Carolina wrens, three species of woodpeckers, pine warblers, and house finches to name a few.
