Eco-efficient Waste Management Systems—ACC
Help spread knowledge regarding eco-efficient waste management systems and practices, particularly in communities and countries that border our oceans and watersheds.
ACC has partnered with LA’s BEST, a nonprofit after school enrichment program to teach Los Angeles area students how to reuse and recycle more plastics. To date, we’ve reached more than 30,000 children at 180 LA’s Best sites.
In addition, over the last two years ACC has partnered with Keep Los Angeles Beautiful and the City of Los Angeles’ Bureau of Sanitation to promote the recycling of additional materials, including expanded polystyrene. ACC has provided $300,000 for this partnership.
In 2009, ACC contributed $100,000 to fund the LA River Keepers program, which restores and revitalizes sections of the LA River, provides young people with job skills and educates youth on how their actions impact the environment.
