Tour Grandview’s community recycling center and meet workers with disabilities at open house on Sept. 19

GRANDVIEW, MO. – JobOne recently moved its community recycling center in Grandview, Mo., to a new facility with three times more space. On Sept. 19, JobOne and the Grandview Chamber of Commerce invite the community to a ribbon cutting and open house at the new location. As the sole drop-off recycling center in the city, local residents and businesses depend on JobOne to handle their used materials because Grandview doesn’t offer curbside recycling services. This event will offer a chance for people to go behind the scenes and see how the expansion helps JobOne process more materials and provide more jobs for workers with disabilities who operate the center.
