Towel Reuse Door hanger

Towel Reuse Door hanger

California is in a severe drought. Mandatory water use reductions are in effect statewide, and we need your help to save water.
Anaheim is one of the major cities in Orange County, home of the original Disneyland Resort, two professional sports teams, and the largest convention center on the West Coast. Approximately 21,000 hotel rooms and 2,400 full-service restaurants accommodate about 20 million visitors each year.
  
Anaheim Public Utilities is teaming up with hotels/motels and restaurants to reduce their water use and comply with Governor Brown’s conservation mandates. In-room door hangers and placards allow guests to choose to reuse their towels and linens instead of having them changed every day. Placards for restaurants state that water will only be served upon request.

Please incorporate the following water saving actions:

  • Hotels and motels must offer guests to reuse their towels and have less-frequent linen changes throughout their stay – A display must be in each guestroom using clear and easily understood language.
  • Serve water only upon request – Restaurants must ask customers whether they want water first. After serving water, do not refill glasses or pitchers unless requested.
  • Reduce water use on landscapes – Current landscape watering is twice a week, 8 min/station/day based on even and odd address. Adjust times as needed to minimize landscape runoff onto sidewalks and streets.
  • Refrain from washing down paved areas except for public health purposes – Consider using a broom instead. If you need to wash down an area, only use a hose with a shut-off nozzle.
  • Check toilets and plumbing fixtures for any leaks.
  • Educate employees and visitors about conserving water – Build a water conservation ethic into your business plan. Visitors seem to appreciate it when businesses show a concern for the environment.
