RMO Runway Contest Winners
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/.
