September 27, 2017 | 4,443 views
Alton – Robert ‘Bob’ Sanders Waste Systems, Inc. was named the River Bend Growth Association’s September 2017 Small Business of the Month. The business that started in 1936 has been passed down from Bob Sr. to sons Bobby and Glenn. The brothers have grown Sanders Waste Systems into a thriving business serving Madison, St. Clair, Jersey, Calhoun, Greene, Macoupin, Montgomery, Bond, Clinton, Washington and Monroe Counties in Illinois and St. Louis and St. Charles Counties in Missouri. Known for their generosity, the Sanders brothers are quick to help churches in their service area by donating dumpsters when they have picnics or outdoor fundraising events. Sanders also had roll-off containers painted pink to give visibility to those struggling with breast cancer. When a customer requests a pink roll-off container Sanders will donate 20% of proceeds to Working Towards a Cure. Working Towards a Cure is a 100% volunteer run organization that pays for things that insurance cannot or will not pay for for breast cancer patients in Madison, St. Clair and Jersey counties in Illinois. There are no salaries, no utilities and no overhead taken out of the money that is donated.
