CWD Rewards Program
Community Waste Disposal (CWD) recently announced a new recycling rewards program for the City of Wylie. The program is designed to not only increase participation in Wylie’s recycling program but to educate citizens on acceptable recyclable items through rewards.
According to CWD President Greg Roemer, many of the blue recycling carts contain contaminants, rendering the loads un-recyclable. The biggest offenders are grass clippings; shredded paper; plastic bags and packaging; wax-coated paper drink containers; paper, plastic and Styrofoam serving items; and paper towels, facial tissue and toilet tissue.
Each week a CWD representative will inspect a selection of blue recycling carts throughout Wylie. A red (High Contaminants), yellow (Almost There) or green (Recycle Program Compliant) tag will be placed on the cart.
An entry number will be listed on the tag for the opportunity to win prizes. The citizen can go to www.communitywastedisposal.com to see if they are one of the week’s winners. According to CWD, prizes will include restaurant and retail gift certificates.
