Prevent Termination of Green Jobs for the disabled

Local Residents and Business Owners sign Petitions to save Green Jobs.

South Bay Vocational Center's "Clean Earth Recycling" a free recycling community service program which provides local jobs to individuals

with disabilities is being terminated by Colleen Mock at the Harbor Regional Center for no valid reason. The Clean Earth Program which operates in

the mirror image of Goodwill's Recycling Program has been in existence for over 14 years. "Our program is ran just like Goodwill's recycling

program and funded by the same people, the only difference is we actually go out into the community and travel to local businesses to pick up their

recycling, Goodwill does not. The community loves us! The parents and care providers who care for our workers are devastated," the program manager

says. If you are concerned with the rights of individuals with disabilities, saving our landfills, and protecting Green Jobs please join us in our fight.

If you would like to sign the petition to save Green Jobs provided by South Bay Vocational Center, please call 310-784-2032.

Also if you would like to voice your opinion about this Program closure contact Collen Mock the Harbor Regional Center Community Service Director at 310-543-0644 (Colleen.Mock@harborrc.org).

      Thank you so much for supporting our cause. The Clean Earth Program not only provides jobs to individuals with disabilities, but we recycle over 20,000 pounds of beverage containers and 7,000 pounds of electronic waste every month. Each day we set out to play an important part in saving our environment by preventing waste from entering our overcrowded landfills.
      This program is important and meaningful to both its workers and the community!

      Why cancel a Successful Program that Benefits the Vocational system and the Local Community with Citizen Workers who have Disabilities providing Green Services that Benefit Our Future Quality of Life. Shouldn't this become a Life Long Project with a World Result Perspective for Positive Impact?

      It's important for these folks to have satisfying, rewarding jobs. Our company used their services and we were very pleased with them and we depended on them, and we want them back!

      Recycling is very important for this community and the planet.

      Our non-profit organization was able to recycle easily using

      the local company that hires disabled workers. It is a win-win!
