The Members of the Mid-Valley Garbage & Recycling Association are pleased to donate $2,500 to the Salem Police D.A.R.E. program. This unique program began in 1997 with numerous bright red metal containers located at schools and businesses throughout the Salem area. Since then it has progressed into a direct donation to the Salem Police D.A.R.E. program from the local Garbage and Recycle Haulers.

Proceeds and direct donations since 1997, including this years’ contribution, total over $88,000! The M.V.G.R.A. helps purchase D.A.R.E. t-shirts for every graduate. If you have questions about community programs and services offered by the M.V.G.R.A., call the RECYCLE HOTLINE at the number listed below or visit their website at:
