- Recovering heat from drained hot water and heat dispersed from the process of warming water
- Recapturing drained water from rinses for reuse
- Using environmentally friendly detergents
- Removing solids and liquids from wastewater
- Installing solar energy and energy-efficient lighting
- Recycling programs
- Re-routing trucks to save vehicle fuel
- Implementing preventative maintenance and spill prevention plans
