The Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority has awarded the 2015 Green Ribbon Award for Outstanding Producer Responsibility Program to CARE and Hambro Waste Solutions Group (WSG) for recycling 123,520 pounds of carpet in 2015. Hambro WSG operates the Del Norte County Transfer Station and was an early participant in CARE’s Carpet Collection Program (formerly known as the Rural Counties Program.) In 2015, over 2.3 million pounds was collected by CARE from 24 drop-off sites across California. See map of current drop-off sites here.
Special thanks to Mary Pitto of Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) for their role in helping to establish these early adopter drop-off locations in partnership with CARE.
