RAM'S "BORROW-A-BIN" PROGRAM
-Expecting a party at your home or in your community?  Thinking of making it a low-waste event but not sure how to go about it?  Let RAM help!  Our Borrow-a-Bin program is designed especially for these events.  The program allows attendees to recycle and/or compost instead of throwing everything in the trash.  Just make sure you only recycle items that your recycling center accepts (visit your city's website to help answer this question).  All you have to do is check out the number of bins you want free of charge, use them at your event, and return them when you're done.  We have pick-up and drop-off locations from are Minnesota!
