The player receives points for recycling paper, plastic, glass and other recyclable materials. However, if the player recycles the wrong items, points are docked
The video game is set up on kiosks throughout the hallways of the king arts complex.

“The Amazing Recyclotron” will soon be available for free on the internet. It is a flash program that can be downloaded for use.
