Argent Materials Helps Fund California Clean-Up Project


Oakland’s Argent Materials joined last month’s “Battle for the Bay” Cleanup Challenge as a lead sponsor with a $50,000 donation – tying the largest to date – and commitment to field dozens of volunteers and host a community cleanup in its East Oakland neighborhood, in partnership with Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley.

Bill Crotinger, president of Argent Materials, said, “This is part of our commitment to Oakland. We clean blocks and blocks of streets around our business every day alongside industry partners like AB&I Foundry. We’re glad the mayors are working together to address the challenge of dumping along our shorelines and throughout our communities, and we’re proud to partner with Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley to support the Battle for the Bay.”

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf expressed appreciation: “One of the many things I love about Oakland are companies like Argent Materials that really step up for our community. With their help, I hope Oakland can win this Battle for the Bay cleanup competition, and more importantly, make progress in the daily battle against litter and illegal dumping in our communities.”

Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley added: “Illegal dumping knows no boundaries, which is why I’m glad the mayors are addressing it as a regional issue. I look forward to working with Argent Materials to host a big East Oakland cleanup on Sept. 21, because cleaning up our streets and waterways is a major priority.”

Argent’s contribution supported both the cleanup day event and associated volunteer drive. Projects planned included trash removal in the cities and on beaches, tree planting, and habitat restoration. The cleanup effort was part of the largest volunteer day in California and the world. 

Argent Materials was formed in 2013 to provide a resource to contractors for disposal of concrete and asphalt and a reliable resource for aggregate products within the East Bay.
