Recycling: So easy, even your neighbor's doing it
Bring “Recycling Becomes Me” to your event: If you'd like a fun way to promote recycling education at your community event, invite us by emailing event details to email@example.com. We'll bring the RBM backdrop and fun cardboard cutouts for attendees to be photographed showing how recycling becomes them. Photos are posted on our facebook page for sharing with friends.
Thank you! Keep showing your "Recycling Becomes Me" pride and like us on Facebook for exclusive updates on recycling events, contests, and recycling-related happenings in the county. In 2012 we gave away lots of great prizes to RBM Facebook fans, including Opening Day baseball tickets and seats to shows at the Fabulous Fox Theatre.
