Advanced Disposal, an integrated environmental services company, presented scholarships to 12 graduating seniors from St. Clair County high schools on Tuesday. The program is part of a 23-year-long partnership between St. Clair County Commission and Advanced Disposal, which is the exclusive solid waste provider in unincorporated St. Clair County.

“We’re proud of the more than $150,000 in scholarships awarded throughout the life of the program,” said Charlie Gray, regional vice president for Advanced Disposal. “It’s because of this long standing partnership that countless students have realized their dreams of going to college, and for that, we are all grateful.”

The scholarship program is a highlight for both the commission and Advanced Disposal, which operates two landfills in the county and services more than 19,000 homes and 800 businesses.
