City recycling contest could net you $100

The city of Asheville and Curbside Management Inc. are co-sponsoring the Feed the Bin and Win recycling contest, which will award $100 a week for 16 weeks. The contest will begin the week of Feb. 4.

Residents of Asheville who are served by the city’s residential curbside-recycling program are eligible for the contest and can enter by simply submitting a completed enrollment card. Enrollment cards and a contest brochure will be delivered to each house along with a 2008 recycling and brush-collection calendar.

Each week of the 16-week contest, one enrollment card will be randomly drawn. If the selected household sets out its recyclables meeting the recycling guidelines that week, then the resident will win $100. If the $100 is not won, the prize will roll over to the next week, giving the next household selected a chance to win $200.

The enrollment card and recycling guidelines are available on the city Web site at Forms can be sent electronically to If residents are unsure of their recycling week, check the bottom of the collection schedule for an “A” or “B” in the lower right-hand corner. 

Additional questions can be answered by Curbside Management at 252-2532.
