On April 22, 2018 the Vecova Bottle Depot invited the community to celebrate Earth Day. Members of the community were invited to join Vecova to celebrate inclusive employment, learn about the Vecova Bottle Depot’s new technology and listen to our speaker series, which included:
- Joan Lee, CEO of Vecova
- Matthew Nomura, Director of Employment and Enterprise
- Councillor Ward Sutherland
Frank and Mabel’s food truck was onsite to offer a free gourmet hot dog and drink to anybody who recycled $10 worth of bottles at the Vecova Bottle Depot during this event.
