Join the City of Atlanta in Partnership with Keep Atlanta Beautiful and Atlanta Public Schools in the Cans for Cash: City Recycling Challenge!

Note: This is Atlanta (obviously) but it's another one of those fun things that would be great to have happen in the various cities in Fayette County. We're just tossing it in here hoping someone might be interested in the idea and get a local group involved. We're "assuming" there's probably a similar effort for smaller cities.

The City of Atlanta in partnership with Keep Atlanta Beautiful and Atlanta Public Schools has entered the Cans for Cash: City Recycling Challenge, encouraging residents and public and private facilities to participate in the challenge by collecting aluminum cans during the month of October.

The Cans for Cash: City Recycling Challenge is a national contest that encourages like-sized cities to compete against each other in aluminum can collection for monetary awards. It is sponsored by the United States Conference of Mayors, Novelis Corporation, and Keep America Beautiful, Inc. The Challenge will award $5,000 awards to participating municipalities and four $2,500 awards (totaling $70,000) to Keep America Beautiful affiliates for furthering recycling efforts.

Winners will be announced January 2009, and awards will be presented at the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter 2009 meeting. To sign up log on to one of the following websites:;; or call 8-202-861-6760. Enrollment Deadline: September 30, 2008
