This contest and the Recycling Divisions ongoing efforts to encourage citizens to recycle more and to recycle more often are all part of Country Executive John R. Leopold's 50/50 Challenge.  In March of 2008, with a stagnant curbside recycling rate of 31%, the County Executive kicked off a campaign to increase recycling by challenging residents to recycle at least half of everything they throw away. 

The curbside recycling rate in Anne Arundel County is now 39%.  Learn more about how simple and easy it is to recycle in Anne Arundel County at http://www.recyclemoreoften.com/.  Have questions answered and also learn more by becoming of Facebook friend of the Recycling Division at www.facebook.com/#!/annearundelrecycling.
