Donor Spotlight

For Earth Month, ILACSD would like to recognize Republic Services for their longstanding partnership and support of our volunteer cleanup efforts. Republic Services provides waste hauling for many of our community events each year; in 2015, their donated bins collected 258,000 pounds of debris from San Diego beaches, waterways and neighborhoods. If you’ve ever loaded bags or invasive plants into a dumpster at an ILACSD cleanup, odds are good that Republic donated that bin to us!

Once again this year, Republic’s bins will be out in force supporting our volunteers’ efforts at the Creek to Bay Cleanup on April 23rd!
