Diverting 30 percent of landfill waste to recycled purposes, this year’s initiative benefited the Clark Mills Country Pantry, the Central New York Veterans Outreach Center, Anita’s Stevens Swan Humane Society, On Point for College, and the Rescue Mission.
“This program provides so much for those less fortunate in our community. The expressions of appreciation and smiles on the faces of those we donate to is what confirms the ultimate value of our effort,” said Director of Environmental Protection, Safety, and Sustainability Brian Hansen.
