Keep America Beautiful and Sprint Nextel become partners
Sprint Nextel and Keep America Beautiful are teamed up to “Wipe Out Wireless Waste” for the 2007 Great American Cleanup™ - the country’s largest nationwide community improvement program.
This year, more than 1,000 Keep America Beautiful affiliates and Great American Cleanup participating organizations across all 50 states are invited to participate in the “Wipe Out Wireless Waste” campaign by conducting events and distributing special postage-paid mailing envelopes to encourage community members to recycle their old phones. Printable labels are available online at www.kab.org/phonerecycling.
Sprint Nextel is giving $500 grants to the first 100 affiliates that register to participate in the campaign and will award up to $5,000 to top performing affiliates for their efforts.
Sprint Nextel will donate all net proceeds from the recycling program to support community improvement and revitalization efforts through Keep America Beautiful.
The Sprint Foundation has also contributed $200,000 in support of the Great American Cleanup, which brings together more than 2 million volunteers each year in over 15,000 communities for more than 30,000 clean-up, green-up and fix-up events throughout the United States.
