Congratulations to Dallas White-Wells who won $500 last night JUST by recycling!
Every month, 10 Morehead City addresses/names are randomly picked and checked to see if they are recycling. The first one found recycling is awarded a $50.00 cash voucher that is credited toward their solid waste bill. At the end of each year, all the monthly winners’ names are placed into a bag, and one is drawn to receive a $500 cash prize awarded by Waste Industries. In addition, the Town of Morehead City awards one $200 cash prize (won by Lorita Guthrie) and one $100 cash prize (won by Nicholas Zahradka). 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, are eligible for the “Recycling Rewards” program.
