For more than a decade, Guadalupe School has been privileged to share a highly supportive partnership with Ace Recycling and Disposal. The company is one of the biggest independent haulers in the Western United States, employs 200+ individuals, and runs approximately 100 trucks each day. They are also deeply committed to effective recycling practices and investing in a greener future for America.
Over the years, Ace Disposal has been exemplary in its multifaceted support of Guadalupe School. The company has long picked up Guadalupe’s recycling and trash at no charge, offsetting a significant expense for the School and allowing more funds to go straight to our academic programs. Ace has been a sponsor at numerous Guadalupe fundraising events. We love it when Ace folks are at our events! Most recently, Ace met with our Adult Education and Executive Directors to set up a system of making Guadalupe parents and adult education students aware of current job openings at Ace, which offers its employees great careers.
When asked about Ace's support of Guadalupe, Matt Stalsberg, owner and general manager, said, "We at Ace Disposal tremendously value our relationship with the Guadalupe School. Over the years we have seen a tremendous impact on the community. The model that Guadalupe has is so phenomenal, we can tell that the staff cares greatly for people. It is a privilege to do whatever we can to help and Ace truly enjoys it. Seeing how Guadalupe helps people is a real inspiration."
Guadalupe students are looking forward to a Spring 2019 field trip to Ace Disposal where they will learn about the use of renewable energy in a large scale industrial operation, how recycling works, and how big those trucks really are! We greatly appreciate our generous and involved partner, Ace Disposal, and thank them for the company’s longstanding commitment to Guadalupe School and its families.
