Attending this year’s Greater Burlington Partnership’s Small Business Appreciation Breakfast, we had a nice time being in the company of other small businesses and their respective teams. It was fun opportunity to catch up with folks, take a moment to recognize the successes & accomplishments in our business community, and well, let’s face it, grab a quick bite to eat before diving into another busy day!
During the breakfast, Darven Kendall (Education Coordinator) & Hal Morton (Executive Director) at the DMC Regional Waste Commission took to the podium to present the 2014 Small Business Waste Reduction & Recycling Award. We were excited because this year we decided to put our name into the hat for consideration.
At our shop, we have done a lot to help build and sustain our healthy, local communities, be it helping people discover the simple enjoyment of a fun bicycle ride to being socially & environmentally responsible with wastes produced during our day-to-day operations. That said, here were some examples that we shared with the Waste Commission!
Whether we received recognition for our efforts or not, we knew we were making good strides at our store. But when the DMC Regional Waste Commission named Bickel’s as one of this year’s recipients of the Small Business Waste Reduction & Recycling Award, it’s was such a good feeling to be acknowledged for these efforts!
As we have always said, we couldn’t do what we do without your support. Thank you!
