The Epes Transport Greensboro terminal is collecting plastic bags for the months of January and February for the Operation Bed Roll initiative.
Operation Bed Roll is a collaboration between the Greensboro, North Carolina Field Operations and Police departments. It is to keep non-recyclable materials out of our landfills and help some of Greensboro’s neediest residents have a safe place to sleep. Operation Bed Roll is aiming to transform plastic grocery bags into sleeping mats for people in Greensboro experiencing homelessness.
Epes is donating plastic bags to the Operation Bed Roll initiative as well as supporting a local high school student in obtaining 250 hours of community service in order to obtain a service-learning diploma.
