BronxTimes: What Should We recycle?

October 2017 – CEO, Ron Bergamini, addresses local Bronx paper to discuss recent recycling laws in NYC and the importance of recycling.

“It is fashionable for many to condemn New York City’s ‘recycling rate.’ It is equally fashionable for other cities to boast of their higher recycling rate and greener citizenry. It’s a small wonder that cities one fifth the size of New York would generate better statistics compared to the nation’s largest cities, including one city a few hundred years older than, say, San Francisco or Seattle. This is not to suggest that numbers are irrelevant, but reminds us of the need to be careful to ask the right questions before choosing data to provide meaningful answers. When discussing the environment and how best to protect and preserve it, data can be complex and subject to misrepresentation. Which brings me back to recycling. Most look to Rachel Carson and her book, ‘Silent Spring.’ published in 1962 as the start of the modern environmental movement.”

New York, NY, March 27, 2017— The Action Environmental Group, the longtime, official solid waste, and recycling provider for the Yankees, have decked out one of their trucks with the teams’ logos as a tribute to NYC’s baseball team.

In honor of the beginning of baseball season, the truck officially hit the road today, replacing Action’s standard trucks on the select routes throughout the Bronx. Throughout the season, the Action truck will drive its route in Manhattan and of course parts of the Bronx so that fans of the Yankees can see it and cheer on their teams.

Action Environmental Group CEO Ron Bergamini, said, “We’ve enjoyed working with the Yankees for all of these years and thought this would be a great way to pay tribute to the team that calls New York City home.”

Leeroy Freeman, driver of the Yankees Action truck said, “I see a lot of people looking, staring, smiling, waving- they’re going by but slowing down as soon as they see the Yankees sign.” He added, “It makes me feel like I’m a part of the team.”

“We have a long-standing relationship with Action Carting with the branded truck program a feature of our Partnership,” said Doug Behar, New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Stadium Operations. “We will continue to work with Action to enhance its leading brand, especially for the mutually successful sustainable programs we have jointly developed.”

Action will run weekly social media contests for fans that spot the truck out on the road, with a chance to win tickets to Yankees games. Contest dates and rules can be found by following @ActionCarting on Twitter.
