Corporate Social Responsibility
At Asante waste management we believe that every business no matter how large or small, has an impact in some way, on the world we live in. Our customers are also our neighbours, associates, friends and family. The schools we serve are the same schools that teach our own children.
The businesses we serve are the same businesses that serve us as customers. The hospitals, police departments, government organizations we serve are also the same ones that care for and protect the communities we live in, too. For all these reasons, we have an exceptional interest in helping make those communities’ better places to work and live. It’s a responsibility we take to heart.
Healthy thriving communities depend on involved citizens, organizations and corporate partners for momentum. We lend our support and services to causes that promote civic pride, economic development and revitalization. Every community has its own challenges, and we always strive to be part of the problem-solving initiatives.
These guidelines outline the programs that Asante waste management is most motivated to support:
