VACAVILLE — Recology is calling on customers in Vacaville and Dixon to replace their gray trash containers with pink ones to help a local nonprofit trash cancer.
It’s part of a lease program to raise money for the Solano Midnight Sun Breast Cancer Foundation.
Recology Vacaville Solano and Recology Dixon will lease the pink containers to their customers for $200 a year. Once all 150 of the available containers are leased, the entire amount of $30,000 will be donated to the foundation, according to a Recology press release.
Midnight Sun provides assistance and resources to women and men in Solano County who are affected by cancer. The foundation also promotes early detection by helping eligible women pay for mammograms.
The new pink containers made their debut Saturday at the foundation’s lobster boil fundraiser in Vacaville. They will replace the current gray trash containers. Customers may sign up for the service at Recology’s office at 1 Town Square Place, Suite 200, Vacaville.
Pink containers will be delivered in September, in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
For more information on the pink trash containers, call Recology Vacaville Solano at 448-2945 or Recology Dixon at 678-4026. For more information about the Solano Midnight Sun Breast Cancer Foundation, visit solanomidnightsun.org.
