The Belleville Kiwanis Club held it’s annual eCycle collection between Crehan’s Irish Pub and the Skyview Drive-In on May 4, 2019. Partnering with Power Recycling, the Club collected over 10,000 pounds of recyclables that would have otherwise made its way to the landfill.
“This illustrates the impact that a small organization can have when they partner with the community. This is all stuff that will stay out of the landfill,” said Patti Thomas, President of the Kiwanis Club of Belleville.
The Kiwanis volunteers had little time to rest during the three hours collecting appliances, old TVs, lawn mowers, grills, computers, bicycles, and a variety of other home and office materials. The proceeds will go toward helping children in the Belleville community.
