Over the next few weekends the Chore Busters will be making a contribution to the automated waste collection system and curbside recycling rollout at the Arrow Refuse site. There are five newly refurbished waste collection trucks at Arrow as well as the 8,500 carts ready to assemble. Many local officials as well as residential customers have been by the office recently to gawk at the newly refurbished and painted, automated, shiny trucks.
The Chore Busters job is not to test drive the trucks and the hydraulic collection arms, but to assemble the carts for the new automated system. The goal for the May 5-6 weekend, was to have the Chore Busters assemble 1,000 carts.
Chore Busters is a program to allow football players to achieve the program fundraising goals in order to enable the team to travel and compete around the state. Each player must earn $1,800 to pay for these expenses. Arrow Refuse is proud to "team up" with the Chore Busters. Arrow said it cannot think of a better way to support community involvement in our new rollout and at the same time support Juneau's youth and local team sports programs.
Arrow Refuse is proud to provide curbside recycling to the Juneau market and is are happy to answer any questions and assist in any way with participation in its new curbside recycling program. Arrow said it is committed to reducing the waste footprint in Juneau and across Alaska, and are continually striving to make this community that we all live, work and play in a "cleaner and greener" community.
