Monroe County is teaming up with the Amerks and Wegmans for a renewed push to encourage proper recycling of plastic bags.
They don’t belong in the trash or curbside recycling, as they can cause major issues at the recycling plant. They need to be recycled either back at the grocery store, or a recycling plant — like the Monroe County Eco Park, and if you choose the Eco Park, you may get an extra bonus.
“Anyone that brings a recyclable item here to the Eco-Park either tomorrow, Saturday the 7th, or next Wednesday the 11th of April, you’re going to get a free ticket voucher to our game on April 11 against the Syracuse Crunch,” explains Rob Minter, Amerks VP of Business Operations.
That game is a big one for the Amerks: It’s a potential playoff seeding game against Syracuse.
