TOWN of ERIN, Ontario – Nestlé Waters Canada, Canada’s market share-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, today announced that it has donated $8,500 worth of recycling and garbage bins to the Town of Erin for use in its community centre facilities and recreational parks.

The new infrastructure is being installed this week in the Town’s community centres and will be rotated through the community’s recreational park system during the spring, summer and early fall.

“We are most thankful to Nestlé Waters Canada for quickly stepping up when Council and staff identified that our litter and recycling efforts needed to be improved in Erin and Hillsburgh,” said Allan Alls, Mayor, Town of Erin. “Nestlé Waters continues to be a good corporate partner year-in and year-out, providing financial and in-kind assistance to Erin and Hillsburgh as well as to the various organizations in our community that are working to make the Town of Erin a great place to live, work and play.”

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to help the Town of Erin further improve its recycling programs, as sustained recycling in Ontario and across Canada is critical to our nation’s long-term environmental progress,” said Debbie Moore, President, Nestlé Waters Canada. “Given the state-of-the-art recycling infrastructure that is being installed, the recycling model that will be used and the ongoing communications to residents that will be established in all of the facilities and parks, we are very confident that the Town of Erin will make great strides in increased recycling and reduced littering this year and in the years to come.”
