“We want to thank the runners and Music City residents who help us create a cleaner, greener community each day by recycling and supporting our local chapter of MADD in the process,” says Nathan Jones, Operations Manager for ATRS Tennessee.

American Textile Recycling Services (ATRS) is proud to debut its “Rock, Run, Recycle” campaign at St. Jude’s Country Music Marathon and ½ Marathon Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville and Health & Fitness Expo on April 27-28, 2013 at Centennial Park and the Nashville Convention Center.

As the exclusive textile recycler for the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon, ATRS Recycling will collect dropped running gear from the race, effectively clearing the route in front of waste disposal trucks and diverting textiles from Nashville landfills. ATRS will host a booth at the Health & Fitness Expo to educate participants, families and the local community about its textile recycling mission. The Expo will attract approximately 30,000 marathoners and attendees. Participants are encouraged to clean out their closets and drop off unwanted running gear, shoes and clothing at conveniently located recycling bins throughout Nashville in support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) of Tennessee.

“We’re excited to be part of the green business community in Nashville and support Rock ‘n Roll Marathon at this healthy event," says Nathan Jones, Operations Manager for ATRS Tennessee. “We want to thank the runners and Music City residents who help us create a cleaner, greener community each day by recycling and supporting our local chapter of MADD in the process.”

ATRS is the nation’s fastest growing textile recycler. Its socially responsible business model provides free textile recycling solutions for the public, job stimulation and much-needed funding for worthy local charities. With branches in 11 markets including Tennessee, Texas, Florida, Michigan, Atlanta, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado and Southern California, ATRS is committed to keeping textile waste from local landfills and promoting a greener tomorrow.
