BENEFITING: Pinellas Habitat for Humanity
First and foremost....
We need a new truck! Recycling debris at a construction site responsibly requires three different spots! So we need a new truck to take all the recyclables everywhere. At the same time we are also getting so many requested donations, which is awesome, but we don't have enough trucks to pick them all up, which is not awesome. With a new truck we could get all of these donations to raise money for houses! We could also use it to recycle responsibly. It's not the easiest thing to do, but we need to do it for ourselves and the environment.!
We would use the money for environmental projects at the construction site, like diverting wastewater! Wastewater is a pretty nasty thing, as the name implies. It is even more nasty when it flows down to the gulf of Mexico as rainwater, possibly adding another dead zone. Because of this, we want to start to divert our rainwater and dispose of it to prevent it from washing through the soil into any aquifers or from flowing into our nearby watershed.
