Waste Management Think Green Reuse and Recycling Challenge is on now and locals are encouraged to participate to help local non-profits win up to $20,000.

Locals who have Waste Management as their service provider for recycling, composting and garbage have the chance to win big and save the planet at the same time.

The competition is on now through October and the neighborhood region that reduces the most garbage 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.

Regions that reduce waste through creativity and strong community involvement can win up to $15,000 for the non-profit(s) of your choice.

The list of possibilities is endless. An example could be to 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.
