SCI REMC employees utilize office recycling as part of our GoGreen efforts. The cardboard, newspapers, bottles, and cans that employees recycle result in monetary proceeds that are donated to local charitable organizations, which are selected by REMC employees. Past recipients include Martinsville’s Good Shepherd Community Clinic, Wellspring Center, and Desert Rose.
