Continental Automotive Kicks Earth Day Into High Gear

Posted by – Elizabeth Brennan, Community Development Executive Assistant

Continental Automotive held its 2nd annual Conti Earth Day and Clean-Up Spectacular event today, as part of the Auburn Hills “Keep It Clean” program.

75 Continental employees took to the streets in a tremendous clean-up effort and collected 80 bags of litter and debris from parts of Harmon Road, Joslyn Road, and Continental Drive.  Continental gave all participating employees a water bottle and a tree seedling to celebrate their efforts.

Continental has multiple locations in Auburn Hills and is home to thousands of employees.  “We are proud to be a part of this community and we want to ensure the streets of our community are clean,” said Tom Richards, Senior Account Manager at Continental and event organizer.  “At Continental, environmental protection and friendliness is not just a motto but something we take very seriously, from producing fuel efficient technology to ensuring our local roads and neighborhoods are clean and safe.  That is why we are committed to participating in the Auburn Hills Keep It Clean program each year.”

Keep It Clean is a City program designed to keep roadsides, open areas and parks clean and attractive.  Participants “adopt” an area and hold clean-up events to keep it beautiful and litter-free.

The program is open for business in spring, summer, and fall and is available to all types of organizations including scout troops, church groups, teen groups, social clubs and service organizations.  There’s no fee to participate and garbage bags, pickers, orange vests and road safety signs are provided by the City.

We thank Continental Automotive for being a great neighbor and for serving as a terrific example.  Together we make the City of Auburn Hills beautiful.

Happy Earth Day!
