Did you know that if you recycle one aluminum can, you can save the same amount of energy that's needed to power your flat screen TV for about four hours?
When you recycle products you use every day, like cardboard boxes, soda cans and milk jugs, you can give new life to the items thrown away daily.
DAMA works hard with our residents and businesses by recycling your trash to save energy and help lower greenhouse gas emissions too.
We would like to show everyone how hard you are working to accomplish this with us.
Please email us your picture showing how you and your family use your DAMA recycle container to save the back mountain and the planet.
