A press release from the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County:
Algonquin Talks Trash: A COMMUNITY RECYCLING EVENT
Algonquin, April 30, 2015: The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County and Teagen Andrews Commercial Recycling Program Advocate from Ecossential Solutions Inc. are hosting Algonquin Talks Trash, a community event on the benefits of small business recycling.
The event will highlight strategies to help small- to medium-sized businesses save money with environmentally sound waste management practices.
Recycling and reusing materials in a business is an easy way for business owners to cut waste management costs while benefiting the environment.
The branding company Landor Associates found that, “77% of consumers say it is important for companies to be socially responsible.”
This social responsibility includes the company’s environmental impacts and the steps taken to minimize environmentally harmful operations.
The event is open to all businesses and residents of Algonquin and the surrounding communities.
We will also be joined by Algonquin city officials and waste haulers for a wide-range of dialogue.
What else is in store: A review resources available to cut waste management costs for small- to medium-sized businesses, interaction time with Waste Management and Groot representatives regarding the actual costs of business recycling, community discussions on the benefits of commercial recycling, networking while enjoying food and beverages, free entry ticket to the Algonquin Small Business Raffle per attendee.
Small business owners interested in starting a recycling program will be provided with actionable information such as the Defenders’ Small Business Recycling Pamphlet and opportunities for Defenders’ business memberships.
Business owners can also talk to a Sustainability Consultant from Ecossential Solutions Inc. for
additional information on the pros and cons of commercial recycling.
Come celebrate Algonquin’s continued efforts to promote environmentally beneficial business and community goals and close out Earth Month with a great step forward for Algonquin’s Small Businesses!
