We recently sponsored the Housatonic Resource Recovery Authority’s (HRRA) 11th Annual Recycling Billboard Contest. The theme this year was Reduce Reuse Recycle, as students created billboards to help promote and educate the public about reducing, reusing and recycling. Congratulations to all the winners!

The Stratford Historic District organized a cleanup event which our very own John Ortiz participated in and gave out All American Waste sweatshirts to volunteers on April 21, 2018, cleaning up streets in Bridgeport, CT. Along with 11 students participating from Sacred Heart University and other volunteers, we were able to fill 25 bags of trash and help make the neighborhood cleaner. Thank you to the Stratford Historic District for organizing the event, John Ortiz and to all the volunteers who made it a great success!
On Saturday, April 21, two All American Waste drivers, Phill Zabo and “Zak” Zollie Hyman, along with Gary Hoefling and Ken Vallera, participated in the Town of Hamden’s Earth Day event. We brought a front load and a side load truck to the “touch-a-truck” part of the event, which was held at Hamden High School. The event ran from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. where we met with and talked with any and all visitors that stopped by our trucks, including the Town of Hamden’s Recycling coordinator, Haley Starvaggi. Thank you to everyone who made this a fun and successful event!
