Participants at this weekend’s Rock ‘n Roll Marathon in Phoenix, Arizona are challenged to keep Phoenix beautiful from January 17-18, 2014 by dropping warm up gear into conveniently located ROCK RUN RECYCLE carts provided by ATRS Recycling at corals and Start line. Spectators, friends, family and Phoenix residents can join the challenge by recycling their unwanted clothing, shoes, running gear, used towels and household textiles at the ATRS booth at The Expo.
ATRS has partnered with Brooks Shoe to recycle running shoes in exchange for coupons and a fitting for a new pair in the Brooks booth.
Watch for the distinctive ATRS Recycling truck and brightly outfitted volunteers along the course. They’ll be clearing the course of any dropped gear along with unused medals, event tees and other race swag and recycling them to benefit local charity partner The Weldon House in Phoenix, Arizona. All leftover apples, bananas, packaged oatmeal bars, pretzels and other perishables collected from the Finish Line will be delivered to Weldon House after the race to support resident mothers and their children.
“It is a huge event and gives ATRS the opportunity to increase the awareness about the importance of recycling and keeping these events green,” Says Robby Milner Market Team Manager in Arizona, “Not only [does this event] educate the community served, but also people from all around the country. Good luck to all the runners we will be there to support you.”
