What People are Saying about us.
Thank all of you so much for providing my class with magnets to explore magnetism in our science unit. Science is so often overlooked in the lower elementary grades and we have so few physical items for the students to explore with. There also is no budget from the school district these days for us to buy science equipment so if we want them the money always has to come out of our pocket. My students are excited to explore magnetism with them when they arrive.

I would like to thank you once again for your partnership with our office to host our first Stuff the Bus event for the 65th Assembly District. Without the assistance and generosity of our amazing community partners like you, this effort would not have been possible. Together, we were able to raise over $11,000 worth of school supplies and handed out over 200 backpacks to needy students and their families during our distribution event last weekend. The parents were extremely grateful for this extra help and it was very rewarding to see the children open their new backpacks and smile. Again, I can not stress enough how thankful I am to you for helping to ensure the success of this event. I am looking forward to continuing to work with you to serve our community and hopefully working together again next year for our Second Annual Stuff the Bus. This year was a great start, and I am excited to see this effort grow and expand each year so we can reach more students and assist more families.

Dear ATRS SoCal: Thank you so very much for the wonderful playhouse furniture donation. The students and parents are very excited. I really appreciate your support to help make my transitional kindergarten a great year. Love, Mrs. Linne.

The Maurices stores in Southern Michigan are so excited to be a part of Shop&Recycle 2015! We love to participate in events that benefit our hometown and bring awareness to a good cause, like this textile recycling drive. Having multiple Maurices participating throughout our region makes it that much better; it always sparks some friendly competition in our stores!

I just happened upon your bin one day, never having heard of ATRS, at the Promenade Mall in Scottsdale, AZ. I had seen a television report from Europe about textile recycling a couple of years ago, but did not know of any services here in the USA. So it was a real stroke of luck when I saw your bin and then looked you up on the Internet. I am getting the word out with friends and family about your service. Thank you!

When making my donation last night I accidentally placed the wrong bag in the ATRS bin. I called the 24-Hr Hotline this morning to report my mistake, and received a call back almost immediately. The ATRS driver arrived promptly to help me retrieve my bag. Thank you for the impressive customer service, I really appreciate it.

Thank you very much for your donation to the 2nd annual and very successful Trash 2 Trends Recycled Fashion Show Fundraiser for Keep Orlando Beautiful. Your generous donation helped make the evening a huge success. The excitement at the event was overwhelming and guests were blown away by what the designers created from trash! This all would not have been possible without ATRS’ contribution. You helped Keep Orlando Beautiful meet goals in the areas of litter prevention, waste reduction, recycling and beautification. We are excited to give back to the community with the funds raised.

I accidentally placed a bag with my medication into one of your Houston area clothing & shoe recycling bins. I called the 24-Hr Hotline and within an hour, an ATRS team member in Houston arrived to retrieve my belongings. Thank you, ATRS, for being so helpful and prompt!

Keep Scottsdale Beautiful worked with ATRS Manager Robby Milner and his team in Arizona to collect shoes for our Super Scottsdale Shoe Drive. We couldn’t have had such a great success without Robby and his team, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. He is truly a standup guy and ATRS is lucky to have him. Thanks for everything!

We wanted to thank Ernest Angerstein from ATRS so much for how quickly he assisted us yesterday. Our little girl’s favorite toy was accidentally dropped in the recycling bin along with other items we donated. We called the 24 hour hotline, and Ernest drove all the way across town on a Sunday afternoon to retrieve it. The level of professionalism from every person that we dealt with was outstanding! We can’t even begin to think of how to repay you for your kindness. We look forward to using ATRS to recycle treasures passed down from our children for years to come.
Again, we thank you!
Ruben & Cassia L., Houston residents
