El Dorado Disposal and parent company Waste Connections Inc., headquartered in Folsom, hosted their annual Christmas Promise Bike Build on Nov. 29 and Dec. 6. Approximately 500 new bicycles were purchased and assembled by more than 100 company employees, corporate partners, family members and friends. Ranging in sizes for kids of all ages, the bikes will be donated to area charities including CASA, Toys 4 Tots, Lilliput Children’s Services, Salvation Army and area churches. Nationally, Waste Connections expects to distribute more than 2,500 bikes to charities.
