In the Solid Waste Management radio spot, Baladas de las Bolsas de Plástico, two radio listeners have fun talking about a Plastic Bag Hits CD featuring songs in different Spanish music styles such as Norteño and Rock en Español. Each song clip has catchy and memorable messages about plastic bag recycling that will keep you singing long after the spot's over.

With InsureOne and USAgencies, the Spanish and English TV spots feature the Big Savings Bell. Every time a customer saves money on their insurance policy, they get to ring the Big Savings Bell. Each spot shows employees and customers alike, ringing the bell.
