Hey Fremont, the recycling challenge is on! Win cash for local non-profits!

Are you and your neighbors ready to waste less and recycle more? Would you like to help local non-profits win up to $20,000?
Then it’s time to enlist your neighbors in the Waste Management Think Green Reuse and Recycling Challenge!
If you live in Fremont and have Waste Management as your service provider for recycling, composting and garbage, you could win big and save the planet at the same time.
What does it take to win?
• Sign Up Now! Homeowner’s associations, civic organizations, community clubs and environmental groups are needed to organize regional sustainability efforts.

• Reduce Waste. The neighborhood region that reduces garbage the most by October 2016 will win $5,000 for the community non-profit(s) of their choice. To determine the winner, WM will compare the pounds of garbage per household from this year to last. The region that reduces their garbage the most wins!
• Educate your community. Regions that reduce waste through creativity and strong community involvement can win even more – up to $15,000 for the non-profit(s) of your choice. Examples: create a Recycling Flash Mob, produce a video for YouTube, set up a recycling education table at your community events, or even go door-to-door to urge neighbors to get involved.
