ebm-papst Inc. named the winner of the “Heaviest Haul” competition for business category in the 19th Annual Farmington Town Wide Clean-up 2016
The town-sponsored event in Farmington, CT spanned a full week and participants, teams and individuals, together collected over 5,000 pounds of refuse as weighed by the town on 4/30/16. In under 3 hours, the ebm-papst team of 6 volunteers contributed to the collection with 382 pounds of trash and recyclables. We found enough recyclable bottles and cans to completely fill a 95 gallon bin, plus tires, scrap metal, and lots of trash. Our haul was collected at two locations: The Farmington River near the Rails to Trails trestle, and along Hyde Road between Rt. 6 and the ebm-papst buildings.
ebm-papst has been conducting its own clean-ups in Farmington during the month of June from 2012 through 2014 as part of our GreenWeek activities. GreenWeek is a series of environmentally friendly events that all ebm-papst locations around the globe are encouraged to participate in each year. Phil Hartman, Sr. Director of Marketing at ebm-papst, has participated in all of ebm-papst’s clean-up events. “While it was great to win the business competition in our first official year in the town clean-up, our goal since 2012 has been to be a good corporate neighbor and to make a positive environmental impact. When we learned about the town-sponsored event in 2015 after it had already passed, we decided to move our clean-up efforts to April 2016 to align with the town event. April is actually better than June for two reasons – the foliage is less dense so garbage is more visible especially near the river, and the temperature is cooler for volunteers. These clean-ups are always an adventure and you never know what you’re going to find! Trash is an ongoing problem everywhere and we expect more to be waiting for us in 2017.”
This year’s ebm-papst volunteers hailed from the Customer Relations, Application Engineering, and Marketing teams - Amy Kanachovski, Debra Crowe, Kazia Murphy, Kyle Wills, Owen Butler, and Phil Hartman. Congratulations ebm-papst team!!
