NYSID and Osborne Association Team Up in Customer Satisfaction and Job Creation

Category: General — NYSID @ 3:58 pm

The City of Mount Vernon introduced Preferred Source “Big Belly” solar powered trash compactors at City Hall on September 12, 2012. This unprecedented initiative by Mount Vernon is an outstanding example of more efficient and cost-effective trash collection and removal by government agency purchasers.

Through a partnership with Direct Environmental Corporation, a local business in the Bronx, individuals served by The Osborne Association’s programs for the formerly incarcerated are involved in creating Big Belly units to be sold to NYSID Preferred Source customers, including municipalities and schools.

NYSID President & CEO Ron Romano and Osborne’s Chief Operating Officer Carolina Cordero Dyer attended the Mount Vernon unveiling, recognizing the city’s support of jobs for New Yorkers with disabilities.
