Read the full release from Alcoa:
The Alcoa Architectural Products facility in Eastman celebrated Earth Day on April 22nd by picking up the trash along the one-mile Industrial Blvd. This was the first effort by Alcoa employees to keep Eastman litter free by adopting Industrial Blvd. The next clean-up is scheduled for Friday, September 13th from 8:30 to 10:00 AM. Anyone wishing to help should meet in Alcoa’s lobby (50 Industrial Blvd) at 8:30 AM for a safety briefing.
David Mazza, event coordinator and Quality Supervisor at Alcoa stated, “We are looking forward to our quarterly Adopt-a-Road event, especially since the weather will be a little cooler this time. I would consider our first event a success based on the fact that we had over 20 Alcoa volunteers and great coordination with the City of Eastman to come behind us and pick up the trash bags, mow the road and provide a police escort. I think our efforts definitely have improved the appearance of the Industrial Park. The enthusiasm is spreading as a Cochran employee called me to inquire about the program as they are planning to start a similar activity there. We hope our Adopt-a-Road program continues to catch on and more organizations follow suit in helping to clean up areas around their place of work.”
