This holiday season, Alaska Waste donated 30 bikes, 8 scooters and 4 tricycles that our team built for children in need to local Soldotna charity Love Inc.

The entire Alaska Waste Kenai team participated in the effort — whether through donating, building the bikes, or delivering them. The team raised around $2,000 for the donation and spent a morning building the bikes.

“We are excited and looking forward to next year and are already planning to expand in more cities in our service area. Thanks to everyone for making Christmas special, not only for the kids, but really for each of us, because of this program,” said Dennis Smith, longtime Alaska Waste sales representative for the Kenai Peninsula area.
