Sedona Recycles receives $30,000 from Wal-Mart foundation
Donation will allow program to maintain operations in Cottonwood

Sedona Recycles Inc. has received a $30,000 grant for the operations of its free drop-off recycling program in Arizona. The grant - from the Wal-Mart Foundation's Arizona State Giving Program - will enable a recycling program to continue operations at five locations throughout Cottonwood. The drop-off recycling centers are located at the Habitat 4 Humanity, Central Arizona Food Bank, Yavapai County Complex, YES the Arc and Wal-Mart.

"We are deeply appreciative of the generous grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation," said Jill McCutcheon, executive director of Sedona Recycles. "With this contribution, we will be able to continue a vital recycling service within the community as well as increase education about recycling as a way to preserve natural resources."

In 2012, the Cottonwood free drop-off sites combined recycled 351.71 tons of material that were kept out of landfills and provided jobs for 30 people, including 20 developmentally disabled adults.

The organization is also looking to increase recycling rates through educational outreach and presentations within the community.

"We are pleased to support Sedona Recycles and their efforts to help our community live better," said Scott Doepke, Wal-Mart vice president and regional general manager. "Environmental sustainability is an essential ingredient to doing business responsibly and successfully, and we look forward to seeing Sedona Recycles continue to grow."

The contribution to Sedona Recycles was made possible through the Wal-Mart Foundation's Arizona State Giving Program (SGP).
