Recology Oregon Team Revitalizes Portland Middle School
Thank you to all volunteers from our Recology Oregon facilities who dedicated Saturday, July 19th to Recologizing George Middle School in Portland!
The pre-event prep and event-day work clearly displays an amazing transformation of the school that was in need of landscaping and a bit of Recology love. Combating the invasive ivy and removing the stubborn weeds was an arduous task. Yet, thanks to the efforts of volunteers, the soil has been rejuvenated with Recology compost and mulch.
As the students at George Middle School return for the new academic year, we hope they will be excited to see that their greenhouse has been refurbished and the front-yard, courtyards and parking lot have been re-landscaped. This single day of volunteerism equates to 112 hours of service, which is approximately a $2,800 in-kind contribution to the school.
