Recycling Right Can Earn Residents $100 in Unincorporated St. Lucie County

Post Date:07/22/2019 7:57 AM

St. Lucie County and Waste Pro are once again proving that it pays to recycle right. Starting in August, Waste Pro customers in unincorporated St. Lucie County can win a $100 cash for properly using their single-stream recycling carts and bragging about it on social media.   

In an effort to encourage residents to improve their recycling efforts, Waste Pro is providing the cash to be given out each week to five households in unincorporated St. Lucie County that properly use the 64-gallon, single-stream recycling carts.

Over a six-week period, starting Aug. 5, St. Lucie County’s Solid Waste staff will randomly check recycling carts. Those who recycle right will have a hanger tag letting them know that they are eligible for the $100 cash. If your cart is tagged with a green hanger – take a photograph; tag @StLucieGov with #StLucieCountyRecycles and post it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  Staff will scan social media to randomly select five winners each week to receive the $100. Residents will be notified through social media that they’ve won and how to obtain their cash.

Households that aren’t recycling right will receive a red hanger tag, explaining what they did wrong, so they can try again.

Single-stream recycling carts can be used for everything from pots and pans to empty cans, including cardboard, paper products and metals. Items not accepted include: Pyrex cookware, hoses, Styrofoam, clothing, plastic bags, rubber items, shrink wrap, bottle caps, ceramics, window glass and six-pack rings.

For more information about St. Lucie County’s recycling efforts visit www.stluciecountyrecycles.com or call 772-595-9390. 

Employees of the St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners are not eligible to participate in this program. Funding is being provided entirely by Waste Pro.
