In 2017, Safeway/Albertsons became one of only two companies in Washington to own and operate a Styrofoam Densifying Machine.
Today, Safeway/Albertsons diverts 45,000 lbs. of Styrofoam out of Washington landfills annually.
Earlier this year, the City of Auburn partnered with Safeway/Albertsons to provide two collection events for the Auburn public, collecting over 4,500 cubic feet of Styrofoam (approximately one 53 foot long semi-trailer).
When you stand in Jardín, Colombia, the closest Albertsons Companies store is about 2,000 miles away. But the relationship between this 17,000-person community nestled behind the Andes Mountains and Albertsons Cos. is much tighter than that vast distance implies.
Coffee is the foundation of the bond. It was strengthened recently when the Albertsons Cos. Own Brands team did something that’s in the company’s DNA—give back to a community where it does business.
Albertsons Companies, which includes the Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions supermarket chains, is one of the businesses that employ people with disabilities.
“Our stores have relationships with nonprofits who work specifically to develop job skills for developmentally disabled workers. We look for people who can take care of customers and interact with them, and those are teachable skills.”
More than 40 volunteers from the Albertsons Community Team joined forces at the Company’s Innovation center to host the United Way's second annual Holiday Helper Event. The task? To fill care packages for families in need throughout the Boise area.
