PALM CITY -- Most people are familiar with the three R's - reduce, reuse, and recycle. And for one local company, it's more than a saying or a waste reduction process; it's part of their core values in operating their business.
R3 Recycling is Martin County's subcontractor for the handling and recycling of construction and demolition debris. With a lofty goal of a 100 percent waste diversion rate, R3 is committed to finding alternative uses for all the material it receives at the Martin County Recycling Facility in Palm City.
But R3 President Justin D'Adamo is invested in more than just waste diversion. D'Adamo believes in helping to improve the communities where they work, and recently made that commitment known by becoming a sponsor of Keep Martin Beautiful's annual Extreme Martin Makeover at the Steward level.
"It was a natural fit for us to support Keep Martin Beautiful's community improvement projects," Mr. D'Adamo said. "This is an organization that works with volunteers every day to better the quality of life in Martin County. The Extreme Martin Makeover projects are a great example of what communities can do when they work together."
Keep Martin Beautiful coordinates its Extreme Martin Makeover efforts as part of Keep America Beautiful's national Great American Cleanup campaign - the nation's largest, annual community improvement program held annually between March and May.
In addition to numerous neighborhood beautification days and litter removal cleanups scheduled throughout the three-month initiative, KMB coordinates a larger, community revitalization project as a part of its annual Extreme Martin Makeover. This year, the organization completed its second year of a three-year commitment to the Booker Park community of Indiantown.
"We were thrilled to be a part of a process that is revitalizing homes, landscaping properties and ultimately bringing neighbors together to create a sense of community pride. We are proud to help Keep Martin Beautiful help all of Martin County, and look forward to more partnerships in the future," Mr. D'Adamo added.
