Recycling Contest Winners

Recycling Rewards Program

Each month ten (10) names/addresses are randomly picked and checked to see if they are recycling.

The first one caught recycling is awarded a fifty ($50.00) cash voucher that is credited toward their solid waste bill. At the end of each year (October- September), all the monthly winners’ names are placed into a hat, and one is drawn to receive a $500.00 cash prize awarded by Waste Industries.

The Town of Morehead City will be awarding one (1) $200.00 and one (1) $100.00 cash prize to our drawing in addition to the $500.00 award from Waste Industries.  So now more than ever it really does pay to RECYCLE.

Only those residents who participate in the City’s roll out cart collection service, which includes curbside recycling, shall be eligible for the “Recycling Rewards” program.
