For all who are interested : You must reserve your tag through the local Walton County Tax and Tag office. There must be 1000 orders statewide or the tag cannot be made.

Stop by the Walton County Tax and Tag Office and issue a check in the amount of $25 to reserve your tag. Be sure and tell them that you want the RG tag (Recycle 4 Georgia) which is listed under the category of Beautification Projects in Georgia. It doesn't matter if you have already had your birthday, you are simply reserving the tag for when it is available sometime in 2009. You will also be refunded the $25 in the event enough people don't sign up for the tag to be made.
