Here’s an unusual way to show support for cancer research — pink garbage cans.

Jon and Sons Disposal has purchased 200 of the pink plastic containers and for a $25 donation customers can use them for the life of the can.


Jon Christenson, who owns the company, says he joined the campaign in honor of a sister who successfully battled breast cancer and his father, who just ruined 81 and is now dealing with colon cancer.
