Coral Springs Rolls-Out Rewards for Recycling

Waste Pro

By David Russell

The City of Coral Springs has launched a new program to reward residents who have curbside recycling and do it right.

All residents who use a blue roll-out cart placed curbside can participate in the program. Those who register for the program will be randomly selected to have their filled recycling bin (blue cart) checked for contamination on their collection day by a city employee.

If the bin passes a contamination review, the resident will receive a $25 gift card and be highlighted on the city’s social platforms to encourage fellow residents to recycle right. 

Reducing recycling contamination will keep the cost of recycling down and allow the city to continue the program. The city’s current contamination rate is at 35% with its goal to reduce contamination to 30% by the end of the summer. To reach this goal, residents need to commit to recycling correctly.

This initiative is fully funded through a settlement of disputed fines owed to the city from Waste Pro and is not funded by tax dollars. To participate in the program, visit CoralSprings.org/Rewards. 

This program is for residents who have curbside recycling. Residents will be randomly selected for cart review; gift cards are limited, not all who register will be selected. For residents who do not have curbside recycling, the city offers recycling collection at several locations throughout the city. Learn more by visiting CoralSprings.org/Recycle.
