Emterra Group Contributes $50,000 to Town of Newmarket to Plant Trees and Create Environmental Art

Emterra Group contributes $50,000 to the Town of Newmarket to plant trees and create environmentally themed public art displays. The support exemplifies the waste management company's commitment to healthy, sustainable communities across Canada.

 
PRLog - Nov. 12, 2012 - BURLINGTON, Ontario -- Emterra Environmental, a division of Emterra Group of waste management and recycling companies, presented the Town of Newmarket with a sizeable contribution of $50,000. The funds are allocated to help “green” the Town by planting trees and creating environmentally driven public art along the Tom Taylor Trail. The official unveiling of the public art along the trail will take place in spring 2013.

Emterra’s “Community CareTM” program is designed to contribute to the communities which Emterra Environmental serves across Canada. The objective is to collaborate with local communities to find imaginative and innovative ways to improve the overall health and well being in the environment within local communities and in turn, an improved quality of life for residents within those communities.  

“We couldn’t ask for a better outcome from our gift of $50,000 to Newmarket than to add to the community’s tree canopy and create an outdoor art trail that the whole region can enjoy,” said Paulina Leung, Emterra’s Business Development Manager.

The contribution made possible the planting of 100 trees in the eastern portion of the Town. For hikers and nature lovers who actively utilize the Tom Taylor Trail, the environmental art will have further utility, too. The art will double as distance markers along the trail at one kilometre intervals. Residents across the Town and Region will be able to appreciate the newly incorporated, “open-to-the-public” features.

Mayor Tony Van Bynen added, “The Town appreciates this donation as it directly supports Newmarket’s Cultural Master Plan and our ongoing commitment to a livable, sustainable community.”

With operations in Ontario, BC, Manitoba and shortly, Saskatchewan; all-Canadian waste management company Emterra Group (www.emterra.ca) continues to demonstrate leadership in developing ways to create environmentally healthy communities while working towards it “zero waste” mission. The contribution to the Town of Newmarket, Ontario is just one more example.
