A Ford F-150 STX Supercab truck was recently presented at Triple J Auto Group’s main location in Upper Tumon to support the Guam Business Partners for Recycling, Inc.’s (GBPRI) i*recycle program efforts on Guam.

The i*recycle program is an aluminum can recycling program that has been provided to Guam’s schools since 2007 by GBPRI, to help the schools generate much-needed funds and promote the recycling of aluminum cans throughout the island. To date, the program has generated $255,000 for participating schools and is expanding the program from 40 to 60 schools.

Peggy Denney, administrator of the program, said about the partnership, “I am incredibly grateful for and appreciative of Triple J’s tremendous generosity in donating this Ford F-150 truck to the i*recycle program. It’s going to look fantastic and will allow me to haul twice as much as I can currently haul, and I can open the tailgate, something I haven’t been able to do with mine in quite a while!”

Longtime GBPRI members also shared what this partnership means for the program

Mark J. Sablan of SPPC said: “We welcome Triple J as a partner in the irecycle program. Triple J Motors consistently supports island-wide community outreach programs as a part of their normal course of business and we are grateful to them for supporting the irecycle mission.”

Patricia Salas of Bank of Guam said: “This partnership with Triple J allows the i*recycle program to continue uninterrupted. It keeps Peggy on the road collecting aluminum cans, reducing what goes to the landfill, and promoting recycling efforts islandwide.”

P. Sonny Ada of Ada’s Trust and Investment said: “Thank you Triple J Motors for supporting the i*recycle program. The contribution of the Ford F-150 will go a long way in helping to collect used aluminum cans for recycling and helping support our island’s quest for a clean environment.”

Tom Shimizu, GM Ambros said: “Triple J stepping up to the plate in support of i*recycle is a huge benefit to our island, and the community of Guam. We look forward to using this F-150 to pick up as much recyclable material as possible, in support of Guam schools.”

The collaboration with GBPRI is part of Triple J’s “Customers First” commitment to serving the community in more ways than one.

Jay Jones, Senior Vice President of Triple J Enterprises, Inc., went on to say, “It’s a worthy cause – we are proud to partner with GBPRI as they continue to build momentum through this worthwhile program that not only raises funds for our schools but educates the community on the importance of recycling. We are happy to be able to support them in their efforts.”
