SYRACUSE, NY, April 25, 2006 – Syracuse Research Corporation (SRC) celebrated Earth Day, on Saturday, April 22nd by collecting recyclables and trash near the corporation’s headquarters and site of the company’s future 120,000 square foot, 2-story facility. SRC’s new facility will be certified “green” through the use of environmentally-friendly building materials and designed to encourage energy conservation.
The SRC volunteers joined many other individuals and businesses throughout Onondaga County to restore and protect our natural resources. Local residents of the Cicero community surrounding SRC headquarters honked, waved and stopped to encourage the group as they worked along Totman and Running Ridge Roads.
Sarah Stewart, a SRC scientist serving as the group’s chairperson, organized the event “… as one positive way that SRC can give back to the community and help the environment. We are pleased the local residents and industries are supportive of our efforts and hope we can have more participants next year.”
