“The Green Fair is a means to support sustainability beyond HTC and into the communities we serve by encouraging recycling and promoting green initiatives that are easy to implement in any home or office.
The Green Fair will provide residents an opportunity to recycle items, shred sensitive documents, and have fun while making an environmental impact.”

Here are more details regarding HTC green initiatives:
Paperless Billing Save a stamp. Save a check. Save time.
HTC encourages members to migrate from paper bills to electronic bills. Paperless statements are convenient and clutter-free. Although HTC customers have been able to manage and view bills online for many years now, HTC is encouraging customers to go completely paperless by paying their bills using bank draft. This saves customers stamps and time. Members are a click away from savings at HTC My Account on www.htcinc.net.
Some of the benefits of paperless billing include:
- Receive monthly email notification when statements are available for online viewing.
- View, download or print the same information online 24/7 that’s on a paper statement.
- View old statements – up to 18 months – free of charge.
- Help the environment by cutting down on paper.
- Reduce mail and paper clutter at home.
Some of the benefits of automatic bank draft include:
- Save time with no more writing checks, buying stamps, etc.
- Safe, secure and confidential.
Waste Recycling Bins Company-Wide
HTC encourages employees to be environmentally responsible by placing recycling bins throughout the organization for paper and plastic waste.
Employees are encouraged to take the stairs instead of using the elevator to conserve energy. Employees are also conservative with energy by turning off lights and powering down computers when not in use.
