Steelers Fans Cheer For Recycling
PRC’s 2011 “Let’s Tackle Recycling” campaign started tailgating recycling at the Steelers’ first regular season home game with a strong offensive drive! Over one and a half tons of aluminum cans, glass bottles and cardboard was generated by revelers there to see the Steelers dismantle the Seahawks.
