Screenshot of the slogan

Recycle It, Don't Trash It! is an anti-pollution slogan that was included on all arcade games imported into North America between 1992 and 2000. The message appeared during the attract modes of video games as well as on some pinball machines. It was established by United States Environmental Protection Agency Administrator William K. Reilly with an agreement with the American Amusement Machine Association. By law, it had to be included on all imported arcade games and continued to appear long after Reilly left office. The quote normally appeared in blue against a white background with the EPA seal on the bottom left and Reilly's signature on the bottom right. Later games used Carol Browner's signature on the bottom right.

Similarly, Winners Don't Use Drugs is the name of an anti-drug slogan that was included on all arcade games imported into North America for 11 years from 1989—2000.
