Asheville to compete in city recycling contest



10/2/2009 - Asheville to compete in city recycling contest
by Asheville Citizen Times

ASHEVILLE The City of Asheville is participating in the Cans for Cash City Recycling Challenge.

The contest, sponsored by The United States Conference of Mayors, Keep America Beautiful, and Novelis Corporation, challenges cities across the country to promote citizen participation in the collection of aluminum beverage cans.

Asheville will compete with other cities of the same size for up to $5,000 in awards. Awards will be used to support recycling efforts through local education and awareness programs.

Approximately 50 billion aluminum cans end up in landfills each year. Recycling aluminum beverage cans reduces waste in our landfills and helps create a sustainable environment. The Challenge runs from Oct. 1-31.

For more information about the Challenge or drop-off center locations, visit or call 251-1122.
