Borden Waste-Away Group and Customers Continue Joint Funding of Life Saving Cancer Research
For its 7th Straight Year, Borden Waste-Away Group Donates All Proceeds Raised to Goshen Hospital’s Cancer Research Fund by Matching Customer Donations Dollar for Dollar,
ELKHART, IN (October 8, 2018) --- As Breast Cancer Awareness month is well underway, Borden Waste-Away Group met with Goshen Health Foundation to present fundraising proceeds for cancer research that is more far-reaching than breast cancer alone.
In 2011, Elkhart-based Borden Waste-Away pioneered an exclusive program called the “Trash Cancer Matching Fund” where interested customers add $1.00 to their monthly bill as a donation for cancer research. Each year, Borden matches these donations dollar for dollar, with the combined amounts raised donated to Goshen Health Foundation in connection with Goshen Hospital in support forty-five active clinical trials. The clinical trials include a wide range of studies that includes breast, lung, colorectal, lymphoma, esophageal, head & neck, prostate, melanoma, multiple myeloma, pancreatic, and other cancers. Other programs supported includes preclinical studies for early detection, cancer vaccinations and improved radiation oncology verification systems, as well as The Tissue Bank.
Including donation funding from 2017, Borden Waste-Away Group totaled an astonishing $19,346.18 during this funding period, for a 7-year total of over $160,800 dollars.
“Seeing the number of customers each year who are dedicated to donating to such a worthy cause, I am so very happy to help with our ongoing contributions to this life saving program”, relates Chris Himes, President of Borden Waste-Away, “It’s awe-inspiring and humbling to help support ongoing clinical trials, as well as important cancer research.”
To participate in Borden Waste-Away Group Trash Cancer Matching Fund Program, we want to encourage everyone to call Borden’s Customer Support team at (800) 386-3313 ext. 570 to join in fight against cancer.

According to Himes, customers are enrolling in the program each month. "This program is only getting stronger with time. We are honored to match our customer donations and to present the fund to IU Health Goshen Center for Cancer Care.

ELKHART -- County officials in northern Indiana have approved a trash collection and recycling company's plans for taking over the site of a large farmers market that closed last year.
Elkhart County commissioners voted unanimously Monday to rezone the former American Countryside Farmers Market property so that Waste-Away Group can use it for trash and recycling operations and office space.
The company bought the property along U.S. 20 with a distinctive 51,000-square-foot red barn for nearly $3.8 million in June. The Elkhart Truth reports that Waste-Away hopes to attract other business to the 275-acre site it is naming "Elkhart Eco Park."
County Commissioner Mike Yoder says he's impressed with plans for the site despite the differences from what was envisioned when the farmers market opened in 2007.
