Allied Waste Services Donates $5,000 to Santa Barbara Channelkeeper

The funds will support the group's efforts to protect and restore the Santa Barbara Channel

Allied Waste Services of Santa Barbara has made a $5,000 contribution to Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, a nonprofit environmental group.

The funds will go toward the organization’s ongoing community outreach, monitoring, education, advocacy and enforcement efforts to protect and restore water quality and aquatic habitats in and along the Santa Barbara Channel.

“Santa Barbara Channelkeeper is a vital community organization,” said Stephen MacIntosh, general manager of Allied Waste Services. “They work hard to prevent the pollution of our beaches, waterways and wetlands. Ms. Redmond and her staff are stewards of the environment whose efforts and advocacy improve our quality of life and help maintain Santa Barbara as a world-class destination.”

Channelkeeper works on the water and in the community to monitor local waterways, restore aquatic ecosystems, advocate for clean water, enforce environmental laws, and education and engage citizens in identifying and devising solutions to local pollution problems.

“Channelkeeper is extremely grateful to Allied Waste Services for their generous contribution,” said Kira Redmond, executive director of Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. “Allied does so much to keep our community clean, including giving back to the community through significant corporate contributions, and their support will make a huge difference in furthering our efforts to keep our waterways clean and healthy.”

Allied Waste Services has made it part of its pledge to invest in the local community, continually improve its operation and protect the environment. Allied has recently provided financial support to other community organizations, including Art From Scrap, the Goleta Library, the Goleta Valley Historical Society and the Greater Santa Barbara Ice Skating Association.

“Protecting the Santa Barbara Channel is vital to restoring our aquatic life, maintaining our cultural heritage and enhancing recreational opportunities,” MacIntosh said. “We are committed to the communities we live in, and investing in keeping Santa Barbara’s coast clean and healthy is an extremely worthy cause to support.”

Santa Barbara Channelkeeper’s mission is to protect and restore the Santa Barbara Channel and its watersheds through science-based advocacy, education, field work and enforcement. For more information, click here or call (805) 563-3377.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
