Training for a 10K might be a challenge, but adopting simple recycling and trash disposal habits is something everyone can try at the Capitol Hill Classic May 19. Photo: Pepsico Recycling

This year spectators can get in on the fun. Join PepsiCo Recycling in working to keep the historical city beautiful and clean. Bring recyclables to the official PepsiCo Roadster van to swap out recyclables for a chance to win cool prizes like t-shirts, drink koozies, bandannas, and other great giveaways!

Compete with friends to test your recycling skills, and take pics in the GIF booth. Level-up by collecting stray trash by dropping it off in designated bins. Training for a 10K might be a challenge, but adopting simple recycling and trash disposal habits is something everyone can try today!

Don’t forget the no-parking restrictions along the race routes, including streets around the Library of Congress, both sides of Stanton Park, and along East Capitol Street NE between Third Street NE and RFK Stadium Campus.
