WasteCap Nebraska held their annual Sustainability Summit Awards, and this year, First Star was honored as the 2013 Recycler of the Year.
The Recycler of the Year Award is presented to "a service provider that has shown innovation in making recycling more accessible to end-users and in developing new markets for previously hard-to-recycle materials. The recipient employs the highest possible standards for responsible materials handling."
October is Disability Employment Awareness Month, and to help in their mission to help individuals with disabilities get back to work, Nebraska Vocational Rehabilitation is accepting gently used business clothing.
Take a look at their flyer for more details: Business Clothing Drive 2013
Our sales team played a great game at Keep Nebraska Beautiful's 17th Annual Charity Golf Tournament and brought back the traveling trophy! Keep Nebraska Beautiful is a nonprofit dedicated to environmental programs for litter prevention, recycling, and beautification/community improvement. This tournament is their only major fundraiser, and the proceeds help support their many programs. We are happy to be involved with such a great event!
