“I’m One in a Million” is a popular phrase contributing to several recycling programs. One of the first recorded mentions of a million in the context of recycling is from the Recycle America program. In 1989 Waste Management Inc. improved their Recycle America program by partnering with the Du Pont Co.—one of the nation’s largest plastic producers—to add plastics to the items they could recycle. The program collected from 90 communities contributing to almost one million households.
