BRCC forms partnership with Waste Management to benefit students


BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) launched a new program Monday in partnership with Waste Management.


The company donated a retired truck, as well as parts, to BRCC’s automotive training center.


Over 95 percent of students stay and live in the Baton Rouge area and so to have that type of investment from a large company like that and the local region and a support from them will make a world of difference to the college and the community we serve,” said Philip Smith Jr., vice chancellor for institutional advancement for BRCC.


“Waste Management’s partnership with Baton Rouge Community College will assist in its mission to provide first class technical training at the Ardendale Site,” said David Meyer, fleet director for Waste Management Gulf Coast area.


This is a welcomed opportunity for Waste Management to contribute to the exceptional training that takes place at BRCC’s McKay Automotive Training Center.”


The school also has deals with car companies like Toyota, which help them provide teaching tools for students.
