Athens Services proudly joined Assemblywoman Blanca E. Rubio (D-Baldwin Park) to upcycle five sanitation trucks for the City of Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. The refurbished trucks will be used to collect waste and recycling. This will keep the trucks out of landfills and contribute to Tijuana’s sustainability goals.

“At Athens, we wake up every day and put landfill avoidance at the top of our priority list, and today that includes giving trucks a second life,” Gary Clifford, Executive Vice President at Athens Services.

“I would like to commend Athens Services on their donation,” Assemblywoman Rubio said. “A partnership where we are able to contribute positively to our global neighbors and trade partners will undoubtedly benefit our region.”

In addition to the upcycled trucks, Athens donated two pallets of clothes courtesy of Liverpool Los Angeles for victims of the recent fires in Baja California.

Athens’ team members drove the trucks from its City of Industry yard to San Ysidro, California, where Tijuana officials transferred ownership.
