Green living — preserving natural resources - is a smart lifestyle choice that's important to Fairfield residents and employees. That's why we created our recycling and energy-efficiency program, Living Green®.

We make it easy for you to contribute to sustainability without having to make a special effort. And before you know it, preserving nature becomes second nature.
