The third annual event takes place on Earth Day, April 22, 2011. This year, APR will again proudly take on the challenge of greening up areas located near their offices in Marlborough, MA and Farmington Hills, MI. APR works closely with many lawn care and landscaping businesses around the country to help them with their account receivables and this project helps the collection agency give back to the green industry.
The event was created by the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), an organization dedicated to advocating for companies in the landscaping and lawn care industry. American Profit Recovery is an endorsed partner of PLANET and has been a lead sponsor of this initiative since its inception. Member companies along with other sponsors including American Profit Recovery will take on projects in an effort to clean up the grounds of charities, public parks and other spaces.
