FALLBROOK — Community recycling day coordinator Anne Burdick of Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green (KFCG) met recently with the central participants in the electronic recycling component of the September CleanUp/Recycling Day event.
Bill Cox of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and Fallbrook Equipment Rental owner Rick Windbigler and manager Juan Lopez were thanked for their ongoing efforts to protect the local environment by sponsoring cleanup days and recycling events.
The participation of these two companies in the 2009 CleanUp/Recycling Day ensured the dramatic success of the event’s recycling efforts.
Especially impressive were the results of the electronic waste component, breaking all previous records: 10.71 tons of electrical equipment (more than double the 2008 total) and 2,900 pounds of metal (more than three times the previous total).
Fallbrook Equipment Rental donated the equipment necessary to move not only the tons of e-waste turned in but also the heavy loads of roadside debris, while Cox processed all the electronic and metal equipment collected.
These two companies have been ongoing participants in KFCG’s annual cleanup efforts since its inception and routinely offer their support for community events.
Cox, on behalf of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, presented a $700 check to KFCG in gratitude for their cleanup and recycling efforts and to support the future work of the environmental organization.
