FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Recycle & Win Promotion Coming to Vinton
The Town of Vinton is partnering with the Coca-Cola Company and the Kroger Corporation to increase recycling in our community. Beginning October 31, 2011 and running through April 30, 2012, residents of the Town will be eligible to win a $50 Kroger Gift Card if they adhere to promotional event rules. Town residents should expect to receive a mailer directly from Coca-Cola in the next few weeks.
The mailer will contain details of promotional event rules and eligibility for participation. Residents who participate in curbside recycling must affix a sticker, contained in the mailer, to their recycling container and must properly follow town recycling guidelines. Acceptable recycling items under town guidelines are: aluminum cans; newspapers & inserts; soft drink bottles, clear water bottles & opaque milk jugs; and tin cans rinsed with labels removed. During biweekly recycling, the Recycle & Win Prize Patrol will visit neighborhoods in the town and randomly select winners.
Recycling is an environmentally friendly, green practice that is always a good thing to do. Approximately 56% of Vinton households presently participate in curb-side recycling. This promotional event not only presents an excellent opportunity to current recyclers to win a prize, but also is an excellent opportunity for non-recyclers to begin participating in this sustainable environmental practice. Check your mail for the promotional event leaflet.
