A message from the City of Hazelwood’s Green Committee:
Thank you to the hundreds of Hazelwood residents who submitted their recycle pledge cards last year and made a commitment to recycle more. Our recycling tonnage collected by Republic Services has stabilized with a slight uptick in certain months indicating more residents are using their recycling carts. This is great news because your efforts are helping us divert recyclable items away from local landfills!
Since we received such a good turnout last year, we’re starting a 2017 Pledge to Recycle Campaign to give more residents a chance to participate. Like last year, we’re offering fabulous prizes for adults as well as children who make a commitment to helping us save our planet and conserve our natural resources through recycling. Some of the amazing prizes include tickets to a St. Louis Cardinals’ home game, an American Express gift card, free admission passes to Hazelwood’s White Birch Bay Aquatic Center and much more.
There are two prize drawings scheduled to take place: City Council meeting on Aug. 2; and City Council meeting on Oct. 4. Prizes will be given away for adults as well as children. Some of the prizes scheduled to be given away for the Aug. 2nd prize drawing include the following: ADULT PRIZES — 2 sets of 2 free tickets to the St. Louis Cardinals’ game against the San Diego Padres on Aug. 24th (behind home plate), provided courtesy of Republic Services; 1 Rusty Wallace Karting Center Certificate entitling the winner to free passes for two individuals which includes a karting experience and option of doing mini-golf or the bumper boats; CHILD PRIZES — 1 free Family Pack of 4 daily passes to the City of Hazelwood’s White Birch Bay Aquatic Center; and 1 three-hours of time in the batting cages at St. Louis United Sports Academy at St. Louis Outlet Mall. Winner can schedule six 30-minute intervals at different times or 3 one-hour sessions.
To participate, simply fill out a recycling pledge card and sign it. A copy of one can be downloaded and printed off your computer by clicking the link below. Additionally, flyers with a recycling pledge card printed on them can be found at City Hall, Civic Center East and the Hazelwood Community Center. Just fill in the blanks, tear it off and turn it in at the front desk. In addition, you can turn in your pledge cards at Harvestfest on Sept. 9 or at the City’s Recycle Day on Sept. 16.
We are pleased to announce that the City of Hazelwood’s 7th Annual Recycle Day is scheduled for Sat., Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will be held in the St. Louis Outlet Mall parking lot (near the IceZone). New features for this year’s event include EPC collecting TVs and computer monitors for $15 each and Citishred providing shredding services from 9 a.m. to Noon. More event information will be coming out soon. This will be your third, and final opportunity, to turn in your recycling pledge card for another prize giveaway event.
