Dec. 2012

This holiday season help your favorite local charity by recycling aluminum cans, car batteries, aluminum food trays and all other scrap metals. The Keep Grand Bahama Clean committee in partnership with Presto Recycling invites everyone to participate in Grand Bahama’s first annual “ Recycle for Charity” campaign. Individual residents, schools and local businesses are encouraged to take part in this island wide initiative to benefit the Grand Bahama Children’s Home, the Humane Society and the Salvation Army.

This program presents a winning opportunity for our community and our environment. We all know that the holidays produce more beverage and food container waste than any other time of year. It would be interesting to be able to quantify the amount of soda cans and aluminum food trays we throw away from our celebrations but instead of wasting time on such calculations let’s just commit to recycling this waste instead. All the proceeds from the recyclable trash will be donated to the local charities previously mentioned.

The program is simple. During the month of December anyone that brings recyclable materials into Presto Recycling can request that the proceeds be donated to the Grand Bahama Children’s Home, the Humane Society or the Salvation Army. In January all of the proceeds will be distributed to these local non-profit organizations. Proceeds that are donated generally will be shared equally amongst the recipient organizations. Anonymous scrap donations towards these charities are also welcomed.

Presto Recycling is located at 13 Mahogany Street right off of Logwood. Please contact Presto Recycling at 351-9319 or Keep Grand Bahama Clean representatives at 350-9164 for more information about this program.
