Jayco is bringing more awareness to protecting the environment, as a company mission, during the month of November because of National Recycle Day taking place on Nov. 15.
Rather than a 1-day event, Jayco, is joining forces with Middlebury Recycling Facilities to hold a month-long recycling drive. Recycling bins will be available from Nov. 1 to 30, at Jayco’s Middlebury campus, located at 903 South Main St., to drop off paper, plastic and cardboard.
Jayco, along with Middlebury Recycling Facilities, invites residents around the region to bring these items to the drop-off site.
In addition to this recycling drive, Jayco has updated its sustainability commitment through its EcoAdvantage program, the company’s commitment to protecting the environment. EcoAdvantage™ focuses on Jayco’s efforts toward smart sustainability by creating better ways to build better RVs using fewer or renewable natural resources.
“As a major manufacturer in the RV industry, Jayco has a deep commitment to the environment,” said Derald Bontrager, president and CEO of Jayco. “The products we build allow our customers to enjoy the outdoors and so it makes sense that we should aim to be a good corporate citizen by doing our part to protect the environment. … This recycling drive is one of the many ways we demonstrate our care for the environment to all Jayco owners and to our community.”
