The Monroe County Department of Environmental Services is partnering with the Rochester Americans and Sunnking Electronics Recycling to provide free vouchers to the March 18th Rochester Americans home game against the Cleveland Monsters. Global Recycling Day is recognized yearly on March 18 and promotes the importance of recycling and its positive impact across the globe.
“Recycling and creating a clean environment is important to the success of Monroe County,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello. “As we Plan Forward for a better Monroe County for future generations, we must do all we can to have a clean community to live, work, and play. We are proud to partner with the Rochester Americans and Sunnking Electronics Recycling to reward those who help make our planet a healthier place.”
