Celebrate America Recycles Day with a Virtual Game of Bingo

Play until Nov. 30 for a chance to win eco-friendly prizes

Looking for a free game to play with the whole family? Curious to learn what happens once our garbage and recycling leave the curb? Looking for services in the area to help you lead a more sustainable lifestyle?

Today is America Recycles Day, and we’re celebrating with a virtual game of bingo that’s all that and more! Plus, once you’ve got a bingo, you can claim a free reusable metal straw – complete with cleaning brush and convenient carrying pouch – and you’ll be entered to win an Earth Machine compost bin from the Wake County Solid Waste Management Division.

“We moved our annual bingo game online last year due to COVID-19, and it turned out to be a big hit for families to explore the ways they can reduce waste in Wake County,” said Sara Davarbakhsh, environmental education program coordinator. “Even if you played last year, there’s plenty more to learn! We’ve added a behind-the-scenes virtual tour of the South Wake Landfill, an app that lets you track the litter you pick up, and more!”

To get started, just head to wakegov.com/ARDbingo to download a virtual bingo card and cross off spaces as you complete various recycling-related activities. Once you’ve marked five in a row – either vertically, horizontally or diagonally – that’s bingo! Activities include recycling plastic bags at the grocery store, learning how to compost at home, visiting your town’s website to find a list of items you can recycle in your curb-side cart and more.

We celebrate America Recycles Day on Nov. 15, but you have until the end of the month to complete your virtual bingo card. Cards are due by Tuesday, Nov. 30. Only one card may be submitted per household.

Complete details are available at wakegov.com/ARDbingo.
