The challenge for March is focusing on increasing recycling while also reducing refuse.  The neighborhood with the smallest gap between recycling and refuse will be the winning neighborhood.  The winner will be announced during the first week of April. Residents from the winning neighborhood have 30 days to claim their $10 residential special pickup voucher.  The voucher must be used within those 30 days.  Please see the Recycling Competition webpage for more information.

The ongoing February challenge is to increase recycling with the winner being the neighborhood with the biggest increase in recycling from the previous month.  The winner will be announced by the first full week of March.  On the 3rd Friday of every month, Public Works will announce a new neighborhood challenge!
