The Bottle Donation Program supports organizations within Aquatera’s service area, all supporting or providing programming to local, non-profit, youth-based organizations.
“At Aquatera we are growing healthy communities in a variety of ways. The Bottle Donation Program is one way we support the community, local youth and the environment.” says Sarah Martin, Public Relations and Communications Specialist.
For local organizations that support youth organizations and programs in Aquatera’s service region, Martin says groups can apply for Aquatera’s Litter Pickup Program.
“We are accepting applications for our Litter Pickup Program. This program provides a $1,500.00 sponsorship to selected youth organizations in exchange for doing on-site litter pickup at our Landfill, along Highway 40, the Correction Line and Resources Road.”
To be eligible, recipients must be non-profit organizations in Aquatera’s service region; must provide programs or services that target youth under the age of 18; and funds must be applied directly to the enhancement or support of youth programs or services.
