Chevron's Salt Lake Refinery and the Utah Boys Ranch have teamed up to develop a recycling program at the refinery. This summer, employees decided to extend their program, Save Money and Reduce Toxics (SMART), to include municipal wastes like office and computer paper and aluminum cans.
Chevron collects the materials, then the boys from the ranch take it to local recyclers. Proceeds go to support the Utah Boy's Ranch."We are very excited about this program," said Hugh Dickey, public affairs manager of Chevron. "Our employees came up with the idea of recycling office waste and we quickly linked it to how we could help support a community program with the proceeds. Utah Boys Ranch was a natural fit, since we have supported them in the past." For information, call Hugh at 539-7337, or Matt at 969-3252.
