This month, we’re highlighting our community partners and how you can donate to our E-Waste and Thrift Stores.

NCI Affiliates and Firestone Walker Brewing Company honored for partnership

Having provided work for adults with disabilities in partnership with NCI Affiliates and Achievement House, Inc. for more than 13 years, Firestone Walker Brewing Company of Paso Robles was honored this month with the Award for Outstanding Effort, presented by the County of San Luis Obispo.

David Walker, co-founder of the brewing company, accepted the award on behalf of the company. He told KSBY News, "Normally, we get beer medals, but it is great to get a community award like this." For more than a decade, Firestone has worked with employment crews training through NCI Affiliates and Achievement House, Inc., and has also directly hired several of the workers who have trained through the programs.

The event, that’s part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, honored several other local businesses that have provided job opportunities for disabled workers.

Donate Unwanted Electronic Waste

NCI and Achievement House E-Waste Recycling Centers help keep electronic waste out of our local landfills, while providing jobs for disabled adults in our community.

E-Waste, or electronic waste, is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete. Our E-Waste Recycling Center employees collect these electronic items, free of charge, and reuse, refurbish or recycle them.
The E-Waste Recycling Centers also provide a training program to prepare individuals for a career in the e-waste recycling industry through actual hands-on experience in collection, handling and dismantling the various products.
