​Celebrate America Recycles Day with a Game of Bingo, Prizes

America Recycles Day is Nov. 15, and while the Wake County Solid Waste Management Division was brainstorming new ways to celebrate, “BINGO!” – it hit them. Why not make learning about the many ways to recycle in our community an interactive game with great prizes?

That’s exactly what we’re doing. The Solid Waste Management Division is holding a county-wide game of Bingo, and we want you to join in the friendly competition to win a reusable metal straw or a compost bin!

Residents can download a Bingo card and cross off spaces as they complete activities, which include:

  • Recycling unwanted books at a convenience center;
  • Composting your pumpkin;
  • Visiting your town’s website to find a list of items you can recycle in your curb-side cart; and
  • Much more.

Once a resident gets “Bingo,” they are eligible to receive a free reusable metal straw and automatically entered into a drawing to win a compost bin.

Limit one bingo card and entry per household. Cards must be turned in by 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7. Details can be found on our website.

The average resident generates five pounds of trash per day. As a growing community, recycling is important to reducing the amount trash that goes to the landfill. To learn more about waste reduction in wake county, visit wakegov.com/recycling.
