Recycling Bin Initiative (RBI) presented by Montgomery Count Environmental Services Continues

Montgomery County and Dayton Dragons are Recycling Right

Dayton, Ohio - The Recycling Bin Initiative (RBI program) will continue for the second half of the season. The Dayton Dragons and Montgomery County Environmental Services have teamed up for this free, fun and educational program for kids and families to learn about household recycling and how recycling benefits the economy and the environment. The RBI Program only requires two weeks of tracking recycling to participate, but families are encouraged to keep up the good work afterwards.

There are some new changes to the program this year. In addition to a new logo and branding, participants will learn how to "recycle right," with a checklist of items that can and cannot be recycled.

"Not everything can be recycled, and some items that can't be recycled may come as a surprise to many participants," said Montgomery County Commissioner Judy Dodge. "It's important that our citizens learn good recycling habits, because having better materials makes the whole recycling system more financially sustainable."

Hundreds of thousands of cans, glass, cardboard, and plastic have been saved from the landfill thanks to the recycling efforts of participants over the past nine years.

All participants will receive up to four lawn tickets to RBI Night at a sold-out Dragons game, an exclusive RBI water bottle and recycling bin, and will be eligible to win other great Dragons prizes and experiences. The first RBI Night has passed, but you can still participate and receive lawn tickets to the August 12 RBI Night.
