BAC 2 BAC continues to benefit Drumheller community
The familiar blue boxes for recycling beverage containers have been in the community for five years and continue to contribute much needed revenue for The Salvation Army, DARTS, The Morgan Jayne
After five years, BAC 2 BAC continues to be a way to improve the community, all by simply recycling your bottles and cans.
BAC 2 BAC was born as a way to make recycling more convenient and to also give back to the community.
Flash forward five years and the program continues to benefit the community in a number of ways. At that time, there was no beverage container-recycling program.
The founders were able to raise funds and secure grants to install the familiar blue boxes throughout town.
The convenience of hav- ing recycling boxes situated throughout town helps to keep the streets and park areas for the community litter free and promotes recycling.
DARTS in Drumheller also benefits through its work program. Its clients do some of the labour for the program
“It keeps our employment contracts going, keeping people employed and benefits charity,” Karyn Trory, senior manger of finance at DARTS.
At the outset of the program, it identified that the revenue generated from the deposits on the returned bottles would support local charities. Since its inception, it has donated funds to The Salvation Army, the Morgan Jayne Project, the Drumheller and District Humane Society and DARTS.
