WARWICK — On Nov. 29, Guy Bogart, owner of Warwick Sanitation, presented his firm’s check for $500 to Bonnie Wright, community executive director of the American Cancer Society’s Hudson Valley Region. Warwick Sanitation was a “Ribbon of Hope Sponsor” for the Society’s recent “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” event held at Woodbury Common Premium Outlet. The American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk, supported by donors and sponsors, raises money for breast cancer research. Bogart has a personal interest in the fight against breast cancer. Both his mother and grandmother were victims of the disease. It’s hard to miss Warwick Sanitation’s bright pink garbage cans standing curbside throughout the Village and Town. They make a statement on trash-collection day. Bogart’s customers have a choice of green or pink trash cans but the pink ones let everyone know that Bogart not only supports his customers, he supports the community. The pink carts are designed to raise awareness about breast cancer. As part of Warwick Sanitation’s purchase agreement with the manufacturer, each pink cart represents a five-dollar donation to the American Cancer Society breast cancer awareness program. Bogart is also providing purple and gold trash containers to his customers and donating five per cent of the monthly sanitation bills to the Warwick Valley Central School District Athletic Department. 'The vision of Warwick Sanitation is to serve and support our local community,” he said. The company provides weekly collection as well as the removal of bulk items such as large household goods, appliances, yard waste and other debris.
