2019 KADB Office Recycling Program

Dear Business Owner/Manager/Community Leader:

Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful (KADB) is coordinating a 2019 office recycling program for the Albany-Dougherty business community. Recycling in the workplace is a responsibility that each of us needs to accept, and we are asking you to set the example for our community by participating in this project.

If your office would like to be a recycling pacesetter, just fill out the attached e-form on the link below and submit it back to KADB. If your office needs assistance with the “how to’s” check the appropriate box on the form and we will set up a training session at your office.

By Joining the 2019initiative, you will be publicly acknowledged in The Albany Herald, you will be offered free desk recycling containers for each desk in your office and you will receive a Recycling Salute magnetic decal to place on your front door. Your participation in this environmental project says to your employees, clients, and customers that you are committed to improving the environment in OUR community.
