Helping Shrewsbury Go GREEN! The Dumpster Divers “your eco-friendly trash team”

SHREWSBURY – There is a new family owned business in town working with Floral Street School students and administration, as well as many  Shrewsbury residents in an effort to reduce landfill waste.

On May 1st the Fashjian family started a dumpster rental company with an eco-friendly twist, appropriately named…The Dumpster Divers.  Mike and Jackie Fashjian thought this would be a successful business because of the amount of unwanted items the average American family has in their home at any given time.  Upon investigation the Fashjian’s realized the amount of trash that was ending up in our local landfills.  They decided that the only way to responsibly pursue this business opportunity was to do reduce the amount waste that pollutes our planet every day.  This is when the “Trash-to-Treasure” program was implemented by The Dumpster Divers.

Jackie Fashjian became very passionate about spreading awareness to future generations on this very serious environmental issue.  She began working with a company called Terracycle.  Terracycle creates new products from non-recyclable trash that would otherwise end up in the landfills.  They resell these innovative products to major retailers like Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Home Depot just to name a few.  The best part about this program is Terracycle donates 2 cents to a school or charity for every piece of trash sent in.  So far The Dumpster Divers have diverted thousands of pieces of trash from the landfills and raised well over $100 for Floral Street School.  They have also opened a new account to raise $$ for a local Girl Scout troop.  Their hope in the future is to spread this program throughout Central MA and raise a lot more money for local schools and other non profit charities.

If you would like more information on this program or would like to get involved, please contact Jackie through email: Jackie.thedumpsterdivers@gmail.com or call 508-925-5245.
