The MD-DE-D.C. Beverage Association, a MACo Gold Corporate Partner, supports efforts to reduce waste in landfills and waterways along with providing community support.
… I’m proud of the work America’s leading beverage companies have undertaken to increase recycling and reduce waste in our communities. We ensure our products can be easily recyclable by producing 100 percent recyclable aluminum, glass and plastic containers, making them among the most recycled consumer products in the world.
We are supporting programs that have been shown to increase recycling and keep reusable materials from ending up in landfills or thrown on the ground as litter.
– Ellen Valentino, Executive Vice President, MD-DE-D.C. Beverage Association
