The Recycle Guys welcome you!

R-E-C-Y-C-L-E…it begins with you and me! Sound familiar? We hope it does.

Many of the materials (e.g., videos, posters, coloring books, activity books) feature The Recycle Guys. Created by the Office, the Recycle Guys also star on television and radio as well as billboards and videos, spreading the word on recycling.

The Recycle Guys campaign was introduced in 1997 and is now used in more than 10 states and numerous municipal programs throughout the country.

With the idea it is never too early to learn about recycling, this page includes activity pages, coloring books, videos, music and posters as well as links to other Kids' Pages for younger recyclers. All of the resources and materials on this page feature the Recycle Guys.

Just who are they? The Recycle Guys, born in South Carolina, are the stars of a public awareness campaign spreads the word on recycling.

The Guys appear on public service announcements (PSAs) on both television and radio, on billboards and in videos, in activity and coloring books, and on posters and other printed materials. Many states, counties and cities have adopted the Recycle Guys.
