Jenkins Subaru Official Drop Off Point for National Program That Repurposes Recycled Products for Local Community

TerraCycle Include USA Subaru
In roughly two months, the world will be celebrating Earth Day with messages of reduce, reuse, recycle. One local company, however, lives that slogan year-round.   Jenkins Subaru , located on Lodgeville Road in Bridgeport, is part of the Subaru TerraCycle partnership program. The initiative was launched last year with a goal of recycling one million pieces of waste through the automaker’s ongoing Subaru Loves the Earth recycling program.   Known for being environmentally conscious and geared toward those who love the great outdoors, Subaru now has nearly 600 participating Subaru retailers participating, including Jenkins. As a drop-off location, Jenkins accepts items such as plastic cups, straws, lids and creamer capsules.  Even the collection bins are recycled. Collections are then used to build park benches, playground equipment and more.   “We look forward to the new green initiatives Subaru will offer in the coming years and we love how this program creates products that improve communities around the nation,” said Marketing Director Aaron Kittle. “Subaru is the leader in green auto factories and we are happy to promote these initiatives.”   Community members are encouraged to start recycling drives in their homes and offices and contribute to the bins at Jenkins Subaru. The products made from the recycled waste is then donated to local communities such as Bridgeport. Collection points also include REI stores and other partners of Subaru that promote conservation and environmental causes.   April is Subaru Loves the Earth Month at Jenkins Subaru, where additional promotions encouraging recycling and reducing waste will be introduced.
