On Monday, Lane Apex Disposal will be doing more than just taking out its customers’ trash. It will also be hauling away hunger.
Lane Apex Disposal is asking its 10,000 customers to join them in helping Food For Lane County.
From Sept. 17-21, customers can leave nonperishable food items on the curb next to their red recycling bin to be collected on pick-up day.
This is the fifth year the company has participated in the Haul Away Hunger event.
“We’re out and about in the community. We’re community involved and just seems like any larger company could do it. It seems like it’s an easy way to help out Food For Lane County,” said Jack Kauble of Lane Apex Disposal.
Lane Apex hopes to collect 1,700 pounds of food this week. It’s asking that items not be left in plastic bags, but paper. It’s also accepting canned goods and monetary donations for Food For Lane County at its office on Highway 99.
Also, this week Lane Apex Disposal drivers will have magnets stuck to the side of their trucks advertising their ‘Haul Away Hunger’ campaign.
