Metro & Coke are Rewarding Faithful Recyclers!
January 14, 2013
Residents have a chance to win a $50 Kroger gift card on Saturday, January 26th at the Bellevue Recycling Drop Off
Nashville, TN (January 14, 2013) –Residents who do not have access to Metro curbside recycling have their chance next weekend to win a $50 Kroger gift card in the Public Works Recycle & Win Program, a sustainability initiative designed by Coca-Cola to promote municipal recycling programs.
Coca-Cola Consolidated, Kroger, Metro Public Works, and Metro Beautification and Environment have partnered to bring back Phase II of Recycle & Win, which rewards Nashville residents who are “caught” recycling the right way with a $50 Kroger gift card. Recycle & Win began in December for single-family households in the Urban Services District, and Metro is hosting four special weekend events so General Services District residents who recycle will also have a chance to win. The first Recycle & Win weekend event is Saturday, January 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Bellevue Recycle Drop Off, located in the MTA Park & Ride Lot on Highway 70 South.
The Coca-Cola Recycle & Win Street Team will be onsite, and volunteers will be checking all items brought to the drop off to make sure they are accepted in Metro’s recycling program. If they are, the citizen can enter their name in a drawing for Kroger gift card prizes. Ten prizes will be given away at the end of the event.
Residents also have a chance to win a $10 Kroger gift card simply by going to the Coke Consolidated website and taking a pledge to recycle.
After Metro Public Works introduced the first Recycle & Win I 2011,recycling rates throughout the city increased, and officials are bringing back Phase II in an effort to realize Mayor Karl Dean’s goal of making Nashville one of the greenest cities in the Southeast.
A list of items accepted at all Metro Recycle Drop Offs can be found at www.nashville.gov/recycle, along with dates and locations of other Saturday Recycle & Win Saturday events. The Recycle & Win program continues until June 2, 2013.
Voluntary curbside recycling is available to the approximately 125,000households in the USD who also receive Metro trash collection service. In an effort to make recycling convenient for residents in the GSD, Public Works provides a network of recycle drop-off sites throughout Davidson County.
