Ace Disposal tries to help the surrounding communities whenever possible. The following information are different ways that Ace tries to help out. We feel that these are very important for the growth of our community.
Ace Disposal has teamed up with parents empowered to support the important cause of underage drinking. Ace has put billboards on the sides of the trucks to help remind parents about talking to their children about the effects of underage drinking. The power of parents is what is going to help this problem get under control.
Parents Empowered focuses on eliminating underage drinking in Utah. Kids are drinking as young as eight years old. There are the common reasons why underage drinking is bad such as: drinking and driving, and not being mature enough to realize what they are doing or who's life they are affecting. New scientific evidence has shown that the human brain is still maturing until age 21. If kids are drinking at such a young age, they are risking the chance of seriously damaging their short or long term growth of the brain. Drinking alcohol as a teen effects the brain differently than an adult brain because the teens brain is still developing. Drinking alcohol as a teen has the ability to stay in the body for up to two weeks after they have drunk. With that result, underage drinking has the ability to effect children's social skills, motor skills, good judgement; increases risk of mental illness, and highly increases the risk of becoming an alcoholic.

The Road Home
Since 2007, Ace Disposal has sponsored a charity golf tournament for The Road Home. All proceeds go towards this organization to help those in need of housing for one night or as long as it takes to help the family or individual get back into the community. The golf tournament has been a huge success since it began and we are so thankful for our customers who have donated on The Road Homes behalf.
The Road Home is a non-profit organization that has turned into the largest shelter in Utah. They help families and individuals get back on their feet. For the families, there are after school and summer programs for children so the parents can work on housing and their self sufficiency goals, as well as parenting classes. For individuals they work with getting into housing and work on their self sufficiency goals.
The Road Home started in 1923 by helping stranded travelers, but has grown so much they are able to help all across the Wasatch Front. The mission is to help people step out of homelessness and get back into the community. Ace Disposal has been able to help in this movement by raising thousands of dollars every year at the golf tournament.

ACE DISPOSAL DONATES $10,000 TO THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF MURRAY AND MIDVALE
SALT LAKE CITY November 8, 2005 West Valley City-based Ace Disposal, the region’s premier independent waste disposal company, donated $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Midvale and Murray. As a locally owned and operated company, the staff at Ace wanted to do something that would help their own community, according to Lon Stalsberg, owner. “This donation is an investment that will pay unbelievable dividends for generations to come,” he stated.
Stalsberg explained the decision to donate to the club came from within the company, from Ace employees. Management found the Ace Disposal staff and their families had personally benefited from the programs instituted by the local Boys and Girls Clubs, which helped drive the decision. Ace put a call out to its many clients, encouraging them to donate by proclaiming Ace would match all donations. From patrons alone, Ace raised $1300. Midvale City, also an Ace client, donated a generous $144,000, which brought the Ace Disposal donation up to the $10,000 maximum matching level.
