On Thursday January 7, 2010, Capitol Asset Recycling, Inc. teamed up with the United Communities Against Poverty (UCAP) to assist and share ideas with members of the Prince George’s County Green Jobs Training Program.
The Green Jobs Training Program was developed by UCAP to help develop skill sets for Prince George’s County residents looking for careers in the Green Industry. These jobs will include all types of jobs that will improve environmental quality. The Green Industry is a new, multi-billion dollar economic sector that offers career opportunities in green construction, clean technology, urban agriculture and energy. UCAP’s goal is to ensure that this green economy is strong enough to lift people out of poverty.
The comprehensive 20-month program includes job readiness training, classroom instruction, and on-the-job experience for 100 Prince George’s County residents.
Capitol Asset Recycling presented information on their environmentally responsible focus of keeping metal and electronics out of landfills by offering secure and complete disposal options. Capitol Asset Recycling is the premiere, one-stop comprehensive recycling resource for DC metro and surrounding areas.
“Educating the public about how to properly dispose of their electronics is the only way to really ensure a long-term pledge to changing the way our country discards their household and office generated waste. The Green Jobs Training Program is an excellent way to spread this type of information, and Capitol Asset Recycling is committed to helping its members continue their education, even into the workforce,” said Zack Boorstein, Vice President of Scrap Metal and Electronics Recycling for Capitol Asset Recycling, Inc.
Capitol Asset Recycling, Inc. offers internship programs and job opportunities for people, who are passionate about electronics and preserving the environment. Capitol Asset Recycling is a small, woman owned business located in Beltsville, MD.
