Recycler's Card

Kids up to age 10 are encouraged to participate in their family's recycling efforts through the Recycler's Card program.  For each trip they make to the Recycle Center, they receive a punch on their card.  Ten trips complete a card.  With their first completed card, they win a "Ben" t-shirt; the second entitles them to a "Corey" t-shirt, and the third, a "Daliyah" t-shirt. The fourth and final completed card wins a coveted spot on our Wall of Fame!
