Cicero resident in new OCRRA campaign ad

Onnodaga County residents selected to be in commercials as part of OCRRA's kids recycling contest

OCRRA and Pickney Hugo Group, a full-service marketing communications firm based in Syracuse, have released OCRRA's latest recycling campaign featuring 11 children from Onondaga County. The public education campaign highlights the importance of recycling to "save the world a little each day" and preserve natural resources for future generations.

OCRRA conducted a county-wide contest to find "OCRRA Recycling Kids" for the campaign. The commercials feature: Olivia Vinciguerra, of Cicero, DJ Caloia, of Syracuse, Madelyn Cittadino, of Syracuse, Bethany Kozachuk, of Syracuse, Charlotte Monsour, of Manlius, Nicholas Mueller, of Baldwinsville, Luke Puglisi, of Syracuse, Nicolino Santone, of Syracuse, Layloni Vinson, of Syracuse, Antoinque Vinson, of Syracuse, and Mary Zarnowski, of Fulton.

About 100 children were entered in the contest. In the television commercials, the kids thank people for recycling and demonstrate how easy it is to recycle newspapers, junk mail, magazines and other items on a daily basis.

OCRRA is a not-for-profit public benefit corporation created by the New York State Legislature to manage the solid waste, or large amounts of trash, produced in Onondaga County. The organization is responsible for providing options for the safe disposal of garbage and the recycling of items that were once sent to a landfill.

It is not an arm of County Government, nor does it receive tax support for its programs. The majority of OCRRA's revenue is generated from fees users pay to deliver trash to our locations as well as the sale of energy created at the self-sufficient Waste-to-Energy Facility in Jamesville. For more information, visit OCRRA.org.
