Wolf Creek Landfill Helps Local Elementary Schools Celebrate 40th Anniversary of Earth Day
DRY BRANCH, Ga.
Advanced Disposal, a regional integrated environmental services company, is calling on the community’s youngest environmental stewards for tomorrow’s Earth Day celebration. Wolf Creek Landfill, owned and operated by Advanced Disposal, partnered with Jeffersonville Elementary School and Twiggs Academy to host a special party for Mother Earth.
Wolf Creek Landfill sponsored an Earth Day coloring and essay contest for first- through fourth-graders at Jeffersonville Elementary. Students colored Earth Day pictures or answered the writing prompt, "My efforts to leave the world a little cleaner than I found it…" Advanced Disposal is also donating two Cherry Blossom trees to the schools, which will be planted tomorrow as part of their Earth Day festivities.
All students who participated in the contest received an Advanced Disposal pencil. Pre-kindergartener through fourth-grade students at Twiggs Academy will receive Advanced Disposal gift bags, as will pre-kindergartener and kindergartners at Jeffersonville Elementary School.
Earth Day contest winners will be announced tomorrow and will receive Advanced Disposal Earth Day t-shirts and ribbons to recognize their commitment to their environment. The judges for the competition are Commissioner Milton Sampson, Vice-Chair of the Twiggs County Chamber of Commerce; Judy Sherling, Executive Director of the Twiggs County Chamber of Commerce and Lieutenant Jamie McDaniel with the Twiggs County Sherriff Department.
"At our company landfills, we strive every day to have minimal impact on our surrounding communities, while providing a vital service to governments, businesses and residents," said Charlie Gray, Advanced Disposal’s Georgia Area President. "By teaching our future community leaders the importance of keeping our world cleaner and greener, we help ensure for a healthier planet."
