The Friends of the Cottage Grove carousel recently received a donation of $300 in support of the carousel project from PakTech, a local plastics recycler. The $300 will help to help defray the cost of additional lighting on the South Valley Carousel.
PakTech General Manager Scott Diehl presented the check to Alice Nowicki, Vice President of Friends of the Cottage Grove Carousel. Don Williams, Board Founder and Chair, said “The board and volunteers are most happy for the support of PakTech for the carousel project. This will complete the lighting process.”
Williams went on to say that PakTech is an environmentally friendly firm, recycling plastics into useful items that can be recycled again and again, keeping them out of the sea, where the small bits of plastics kill fish and birds.
PakTech, a family-owned company started in 1991, is the innovative leader of 100 percent recycled and 100 percent recyclable injection mold packaging handles.
Headquartered in Eugene, it recently opened a second manufacturing production facility in Cottage Grove to provide increased production capacity and expected growth. PakTech helps make it easy for consumers to grab and carry multiple products using a simple low-waste 100 percent recyclable handle.
