Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Recycling Enthusiast,

Sponsorships available now for Midland Recyclers 7th annual Star Wars 5K Fun Run/Walk & One Mile Jedi Training course that will be held Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Midland City Forest.  We are excited to offer both virtual and in person options this year.  Of course, precautions will be in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Masks will be required, and social distancing will be maintained.   

Why sponsor Midland Recyclers?  For 34 years, we have provided a community recycling drop-off center open to residents and businesses in the Great Lakes Bay Region.  Because we accept “Hard to Recycle” items (styrofoam, plastic bags, electronics), we are uniquely positioned to help businesses meet their sustainability and zero landfill goals and residents live a greener lifestyle.  Local agencies and schools depend on us because we offer volunteer and work experience opportunities for all ages and abilities as well as hands-on educational programs and tours.

Your sponsorship now will help Midland Recyclers provide:

  • Free Environmental education programs and tours to teachers and educators
  • Volunteer and work experience for all ages and abilities
  • Cost-effective recycling options for businesses
  • Reusable items for educators and crafters like corks, cd’s, and jars
  • Self-serve shredding of confidential documents for residents and small businesses

Sincerely, 
Esther Williams
Executive Director - 989-631-1668 - midlandrecyclers@yahoo.com
