Guam Legislature Joins “i*recycle” Guam

179

Guam – The Guam Legislature has teamed up with Guam Business Partners for Recycling, Inc. to take part in their “i*recycle” Program.

“This aluminum recycling program not only helps our environment, but it helps our schools as well,” said Senator Rory J. Respicio, Chairman of the Committee on Rules; Federal, Foreign, & Micronesian Affairs; Human & Natural Resources; and Election Reform.

“i*recycle” is an aluminum recycling program created for the financial benefit of Guam’s schools by the Guam Business Partners for Recycling, Inc. GBPR is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting aluminum recycling island wide in order to help the schools, help clean up our island, and help keep aluminum cans out of the Ordot Dump.

Members of the Legislature received the “i*recycle” training this past week led by Peggy Denney, Program Administrator for “i*recycle” Guam on reducing, reusing, and recycling in the workplace and throughout the island.  

The objective of the training is to develop, practice, and maintain a comprehensive recycling program within the Guam Legislature that will reduce expenses, help generate less trash by recycling plastic bottles and paper, and help promote recycling within the surrounding community. This program will also help schools generate money to pay for the aluminum being purchased at the current market value. To support this objective you can help by recycling aluminum cans and giving it to the school of your choice.
