Amerks, Monroe County Partner for Refresh Recycling Night April 11

April 3, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Rochester Americans News Release

(Rochester, NY) - The Rochester Americans and Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced today the return of Refresh Recycling Night on Wednesday, April 11 when the Amerks take on the Syracuse Crunch at The Blue Cross Arena. The game will feature ticket deals and a recycling-themed giveaway.

"Teaming-up with the Amerks is a great way to highlight the importance of recycling, which protects taxpayers and the environment by keeping unnecessary waste out of landfills," said Dinolfo. "Safeguarding this region's unrivaled natural resources also helps support our ongoing work to attract more jobs and investment to Monroe County. I thank the Amerks for their partnership, and I encourage fans to exchange their plastic bags and other recyclables at our Ecopark to score free tickets to the game on April 11."

Reducing consumption of plastic bags is the best environmental option for residents, so fans attending the game will receive a commemorative reusable shopping bag as a postgame handout. Additionally, any fan that brings a recyclable item to the Monroe County Ecopark on one of the following dates will receive a free ticket voucher to the Refresh Recycling Night game:

Wednesday, April 4

Saturday, April 7

Wednesday, April 11

"The Rochester Americans are excited to renew their partnership with Monroe County Executive Dinolfo and her staff in the Department of Environmental Services on this very worthwhile initiative," said Rob Minter, Vice President of Business Operations for the Amerks. "Refresh Recycling Night provides yet another opportunity to not only help raise awareness for improving recycling measures here in our community, but also rewards County residents for doing their part with the chance to attend next Wednesday's Amerks game."

Refresh Recycling Night will remind residents to recycle their plastic bags properly, either by reuse or by bringing them to a retailer, supermarket or the Ecopark. Plastic bags should not be thrown in the garbage and should not be recycled in curbside bins.

The Ecopark is an innovative partnership between Monroe County and Waste Management. Located at 10 Avion Drive in the town of Chili, the facility is open on Wednesdays from 1:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. For a full list of acceptable items, associated fees and necessary appointments, please visit
