Get Caught Recycling Event a Success!

This Earth Day RAM’s Message in a Bottle away from home recycling program kicked off its expansion to other gas stations in the Hutchinson area as well as in St. Cloud!

The event was a complete success at the Holiday store in Hutchinson on Hwy. 15, they gave out 78 bottles of water to people who “got caught recycling” using the new Message in a Bottle bins with the Recycle MORE Minnesota ads. Many local residents were pleasantly surprised when they were rewarded for doing the right thing. Other “get caught recycling” events were held in St. Cloud at the Holiday store-Waite Park and the Super America off of Highway 10. “This is a great way to reach out to Minnesotan’s and not only educate them on the importance of recycling, but provide the opportunity to recycle,” stated Maggie Mattacola, Director of Marketing & Communications for the Recycling Association of Minnesota.

Supporters of the expanded program include Viking Coca-Cola, Bernick’s Pepsi, and Tri-County Solid Waste. For more information about the Message in a Bottle Program contact Ellen Telander at (651) 641-4560.
