Recycling Rewards Program

Get rewarded for recycling right! Reducing recycling contamination will keep the cost of recycling down and allow the city to continue our recycling program. The city’s current contamination rate is at 35%. We have set an actionable goal to reduce contamination to 30% by the end of the summer. To reach this goal, we need residents to commit to recycling right.

Overview

Step 1.Eligibility

Single family home residents or those who use a blue roll out-cart placed curbside are eligible to participate.

Step 2.Program

Those who register for the program will be randomly selected to have their filled recycling bin (blue cart) checked for contamination on their collection day by a city employee. This initiative is fully funded through a settlement of disputed fines owed to the city from Waste Pro and is not funded by tax dollars.

Step 3.Rewards

If the bin passes a contamination review, the resident will receive a $25 gift card and be highlighted on the city’s social platforms to encourage fellow residents to recycle right. Gift cards are limited, not all who register will be selected.
