MRS Monroe presents Hero of the Month Award to the City of Monroe Fire Department

On April 17, 2013 Metal Recycling Services’ Monroe North Carolina recycling facility along with Fire Chief Ronald Fowler proudly presented the Hero of the Month Award to Adam Moore of the City of Monroe Fire Department.  The Metal Recycling Services (MRS) employees are continually working to improve the communities in which we do business, by giving back. MRS strives to be a good neighbor in the communities in which we do business. For example, all our facilities support local community fire departments, providing space and vehicles for firefighters training with “Jaws of Life”.   MRS works with fire and police departments, and has developed strong community partnerships with programs like Habitat for Humanity or Between 2 Rivers, which benefits Wounded Warriors and Hospice.
MRS is proud to be serving those who serve and protect, and to present the Hero of the Month Award to Adam Moore of the City of Monroe Fire Department.
