FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 23, 2023
VICTORVILLE, Calif. — City of Victorville residents who recycle correctly have a chance to win a $100 gift card by entering “The Right Stuff” Curbside Recycling Contest going on now.
Residents can sign up for the contest on the City’s website: VictorvilleCA.gov/Recycle The contest continues through June 30.
To be eligible to win, residents must sign up for the contest and recycle correctly:
- Use the Blue Recycling Cart Only for Recyclables—No Trash in the Recycle Cart. Recyclable items include glass bottles and jars, tin and aluminum cans, rigid plastic containers (bottles/jars/tubs/trays), as well as clean and dry paper and cardboard. All bottles and cans must be completely empty and free of food residue. Recyclables should be placed loose into the recycle bin, not bagged. The recycle cart must not contain any “trash” or “contaminants,” including plastic bags, soiled paper, food, or garden trimmings.
- Use the Trash Cart Only for Trash—No Recyclables in the Trash Cart. The other part of recycling correctly is to make sure no recycle items end up in the trash. It is important to recycle cereal boxes, plastic shampoo bottles, junk mail, school papers, yogurt containers, laundry detergent boxes, bottles, etc.
Every week, new contestants are chosen, and their recycle and trash carts are checked. If the customer has only recyclables in the blue cart (no trash) and only trash in the trash cart (no recyclables), then he or she is a winner!
“The Right Stuff” Contest is sponsored by Burrtec Waste Industries in cooperation with the City of Victorville. For more information or to request a paper entry form, residents should call the City of Victorville Environmental Programs Division at (760) 955-8615.
