Midwest’s largest trash and recycling company partners with eco-friendly initiative to help families battling cancer
Shawnee, KS (August 24, 2010)—Today’s strategic partnerships are more important than ever. By capitalizing on innovative talent and creative networking, Deffenbaugh Industries continues to build a name for itself as an eco-friendly brand. Now, with a new partnership with cell phone recycler, Cells for Cells, Deffenbaugh Industries will apply its momentum as one of the largest recyclers in the Midwest to invigorate local and national green initiatives.
As the largest trash collection and disposal company in the Kansas City region, Deffenbaugh Industries has already built a strong connection with the community. Since introducing curbside recycling to the Kansas City metro area in 1989 and through programs like the “One Earth, One Chance School Recycling Program” Deffenbaugh Industries encourages sustainability by showcasing leading-edge methods of recycling. These programs reward creative thinking, and encourage participants to look at sustainability as a lifestyle choice.
And now, their partnership with Cells for Cells, the largest recycling program which collects used cell phones to raise money for families battling cancer, allows Deffenbaugh Industries to do more than just recycle: Deffenbaugh Industries is helping families battling cancer.
Deffenbaugh Industries is leading the Midwest in green initiatives and encouraging the community to take simple actions. Recycling efforts cannot be successful when only a few individuals try to make sweeping changes: It’s when a large group of people and communities make tiny changes – like recycling a cell phone – that the results are staggering.
Cells for Cells primary beneficiary is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society whom they support nationally – working with 14 chapters. “We just want to help more families,” says Jason Clements, Cells for Cells co-founder. “Our partnership with Deffenbaugh Industries will allow us to raise awareness about recycling and the environment both locally and nationally.”
