What Else Can I Do?

Start Recycling — The chances for success of any efforts to preserve and protect the environment grow as more people get involved.

Plant a Rain Garden — Glenview residents can help our local environment by planting a rain garden in their yard. Rain gardens reduce the amount of water conveyed into the local storm water system. The vegetation in a rain garden filters the water, reducing pollutants that can end up in our natural waterways. The Village of Glenview currently has a program to partially reimburse residents for costs involved in planting a rain garden. For details on this program, click here.
