The challenge for January is focusing on decreasing refuse. The neighborhood with the largest reduction in refuse from the previous month will be the winning neighborhood.  The winner will be announced during the first week of February.  Residents from the winning neighborhood will 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 December challenge is to increase recycling and the neighborhood with the most recycling will be the winner.  The winner will be announced by the first full week of January.  On the 3rd Friday of every month, Public Works will announce a new neighborhood challenge!
