Spend some time today in EPA’s Recycle City. Visit the various parts of the city to see how the citizens work hard to recycle or reduce waste.

You’ll see that you have your work cut out for you, and by playing the game, you’ll be able to encourage both private citizens and businesses become more aware of how to make their environment better.
