Emterra Environmental donates more than $38,500 to Walker Family Cancer Centre

Something as simple as recycling has paid off big for Niagara Health Foundation's Walker Family Cancer Centre.

Waste management company Emterra Environmental has donated $38,510 through the 'Make Your Contribution At the Curb' program.

For every tonne of recyclables collected in Niagara, Emterra donates $1 to the Walker Family Cancer Centre to help buy medical equipment.

The latest donation brings the overall total since the program began in 2011 to $273,970.
