Los Angeles, California (May 6, 2014) — Dozens of Dart Container employees participated over the weekend in the 25th Annual Great LA River Cleanup event, hosted by the Friends of the LA River (FoLAR), donating volunteers as well as foam recycling education for the sixth year.
"Dart has been a supporter of FoLAR's Great Los Angeles River CleanUp for some time, and we can always count on a team of their employees to volunteer to pull trash from the river", said Lewis MacAdams, President of Friends of the Los Angeles River.
This year, more than 20 volunteers were responsible for cleaning up an estimated 2 tons of trash – up significantly from years past. Since the program’s inception in 1990, the program has grown from 30 to more than 3,000. Just last year, volunteers were able to collect more than 22 tons of trash in a three-hour window.
As a part of the Great River Cleanup activities, employees, friends and family from Dart’s Corona facility helped to educate participants on foam recycling options in the Los Angeles area, including how to dispose of it responsibly. Los Angeles currently has 97 communities participating in curbside foam recycling programs where residents are able to easily recycle their foam waste.
“When I say that we are honored and excited to be a part of the Friends of the LA River cleanup, I’m not just speaking for Dart Container,” said Michael Westerfield, Corporate Director of Recycling Programs at Dart Container Corporation. “Participating in this event means a great deal to our employees as well. They jump at the opportunity to give back to their community and to educate their neighbors about the curbside foam recycling programs available.”
During the event, FoLAR introduced six new mobile visitor centers
Recyclable foam can be identified by a #6 – PS symbol, often found at the bottom of the material, which often includes food service packaging such as foam cups, bowls, and “clamshell” take-out containers as well as large molded blocks used to package electronics such as TVs and computers.
