US Ecology Texas in Robstown is proud of their efforts to support the local community. They have provided assistance in various ways including sponsorships, donations, free household hazardous waste collection events, employee volunteers and most recently helping to demolish and cleanup dilapidated homes.
One of the most notable events in 2017 was US Ecology Texas’s participation in Operation Crackdown. The project involved tearing down more than 30 dilapidated homes as a way to beautify Robstown. It was a joint effort between the City of Robstown, the Texas National Guard Joint Counterdrug Task Force, and US Ecology. US Ecology was proud to provide significant discounts on waste disposal for the cleanup effort and be a sponsor of Operation Crackdown. The beautification efforts are leading to redevelopment of these sites which will improve these neighborhoods and overall quality of life for the community.
Some of the other causes that the Texas facility supports are Cottonfest, Boys & Girls Club of the Coastal Bend, Robstown ISD Athletics, Abel Herrero Annual School Supply Giveaway, Hinojosa Boxing Club, Nueces County Library – Robstown Library, Robstown Area Development Commission, DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), and Free Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collections.
Each year the Robstown Area Development Commission (RADC) recognizes individuals and organizations for their distinguished contributions and service. This year, the RADC selected US Ecology Texas for the Large Business Award. The award is given to a business that employs eleven or more employees and is a significant supporter of the City of Robstown, the Robstown Independent School District and whose employees participate and volunteer in activities that improve the community and the quality of life of its residents. The president of the RADC Board of Directors acknowledged US Ecology Texas for “being selected for this important and deserving award that you have earned as a key economic engine of the area”.
