Recycle, Win Prizes

"The City has installed 15 recycling containers, paired with trash containers, along Tryon Street. This move is putting Charlotte on the short list of cities with on-street recycling on their Main Streets. The idea for this project came from a series of public meetings.

Installation on the bins began on Thursday, August 5. Another 10 will go into the Transit Center.

An incognito Prize Patrol crew will reward people recycling as it happens with a $25 Harris Teeter Gift Card, usable at all stores, and with lunch coupons that are redeemable at the Uptown Harris Teeter."
