All-Points Waste Service is dedicated to improving and sustaining everyone’s quality of life—starting with those closest to us in the Charlotte and surrounding areas. Our residential trash service and LEED recycling program are a few business-related examples of how we help make our community a better place for individuals and families to live and thrive.
Along with our emphasis on eco-friendly waste and recycling services that promote a cleaner environment for all, we also participate in numerous community outreach programs each year in Charlotte and the surrounding areas in order to promote the individual well-being of all area residents.
Like we have for several years now, All-Points Waste Service is promoting and participating in a cause that is near and dear to our hearts again in 2017, while continuing to fulfill our mission to improve our community’s quality of life. This weekend, our Charlotte waste service team is taking part in the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte’s annual Buddy Walk.
The Buddy Walk begins at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 14 at the Jerry Richardson Football Stadium located on the UNC Charlotte campus, and wraps up around 5 p.m. The yearly event, which was first held in 1995, aims to raise community awareness for those individuals and families affected by Down syndrome, and provides educational sessions for all attendees wishing to learn more about the condition, the daily lifestyles of those directly impacted by Downs, and how we as a community can help and include those living with this disorder.
Along with promoting the acceptance and inclusion of those who are living with or affected by Down syndrome and raising money for community awareness programs, The Buddy Walk offers a wide array of social events on Saturday afternoon including arts and crafts for families and individuals, bounce houses for the kids, and much more. However, the main event is the one-mile walk, and we are excited to participate and showcase our support for those coping with the effects of this condition.
Why All-Points Waste Service’s Team Walks
Not only do we walk for all of those individuals and families affected by Down syndrome within the Charlotte metro area, but our residential trash service team also participates in The Buddy Walk specifically to support and raise awareness for one of our own.
Cooper Davis, the godchild of one of our All-Points Waste Service employees, lives with Down Syndrome and is the catalyst for our yearly participation in The Buddy Walk. As in previous years, we have once again chosen to sponsor a company team known as “Cooper’s Sidekicks,” who will walk in celebration of Cooper, and promote his well-being along with the inclusion of all other individuals with Down syndrome.
Although we have already surpassed our fundraising goal of five thousand dollars, we encourage you to continue to donate to Cooper’s cause, and/or sign up to join our Charlotte waste service team’s walking group. We would love to see you out there and walk for a great cause together!
Why is it Important to Donate to The Buddy Walk’s Mission?
All-Points Waste Service donates to the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte because the fundraising proceeds go directly toward:
• Conferences, seminars, and other programs that educate the community about Downs
• Life skills classes and sleep away camps for those with Downs
• Mentorship programs for expectant parents whose lives are or will be affected by Downs
The classes, conferences, and social events for which these funds are raised are vital to promoting the well-being of all of those individuals and families affected by Down syndrome. These programs also allow the community at-large to understand the affliction, and provide a platform for advocacy.
Other Ways to Support the Buddy Walk
The simple, straightforward answer is: of course! All-Points Waste Service’s team encourages you to get involved with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte’s annual Buddy Walk in other ways.

Spreading the Love and Support for the Buddy Walk and the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte
The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte’s mission aligns perfectly with the values that we hold at All-Points Waste Service: sustaining and improving the quality of life for all individuals throughout and beyond our community. Not only do we raise money for and promote the message of the DSAGC through our “Cooper’s Sidekicks” Buddy Walk team, but we also provide trash removal services and porta potty rentals for the event so that participants can enjoy the atmosphere on walk day.
We aim to keep the community engaged in promoting the happiness and healthiness of all citizens through social understanding and responsible waste containment and removal. This is why partnering with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte to provide porta potty rentals and waste removal services at The Buddy Walk is a great fit for our company.
By utilizing the most effective and efficient waste removal service, recycling programs, and porta potty rentals in Charlotte and the surrounding areas, All-Points Waste Service shows our dedication to furthering the well-being of our community’s people and landscape through educational and social events like The Buddy Walk. Our waste service team aims to keep the Jerry Richardson Football Stadium clean and orderly through our trash removal services and porta potty rentals, ensuring a positive walk day experience for all Buddy Walk participants and volunteers.
