American Refuse enjoyed celebrating the Shafter Christmas parade with everyone in the community! This year we had a packer truck and our semi-truck carrying all our families. Both vehicles had a recycling theme with many recycle, re-use items. We had asked the crowd if you could identify all the items. Here is the breakdown:

Packer truck -- Rudolph theme]:

Eyeballs: re-use of cardboard

Red nose: re-use of cardboard

Antlers: re-use of cardboard

Five candy canes: re-use of cardboard

Semi-truck and trailer -- Santa theme:

We also wanted to give a BIG shutout to the community. We donated cans to haul the trash, organics, and recycling in the park. The community did a great job putting things in the right receptacles! Way to go!
