Shining examples of people who care
June/July 2013> Tom Rau, Gene Stricklan, Wayne Campbell
Tom Rau, Gene Stricklan, Wayne Campbell are this month's Community Heroes. If you recycle in the Plateau Valley, you've participated in their lives! These gentlemen have graciously volunteered their time for a long time.
I don't know how long the recycling bins have been available at the Collbran Rodeo Grounds, but in the minutes from the 8/4/2009 Town of Collbran board meeting, "Trustee Satterfield spoke of the Job Corps "Going Green" campaign which coincides with the Plateau Valley Recycle effort and encouraged the Town to assist with keeping recycling available for the community." We think the Plateau Valley Association may have been instrumental in the foundation of the program as well.
What we do know is that the Town of Collbran owns the bins and the trailer and pays the license fee for the trailer. The bins are available and open to the public 24/7, and when they start getting full, "miraculously" they're emptied by Plateau Valley Association members... Specifically, Tom, Gene, and Wayne!
They volunteer their time as well as cover the cost of driving and pulling the trailer to Grand Junction whenever it's needed. THANKS!
