The City of Manhattan Beach and Waste Management of Southern California selected 25 households as winners of the second annual Clean Cart Challenge Program. The program encourages residents to keep recyclables clean of trash and contaminants. Each winning household will receive one month of free trash and recycling services.
Ron Ehrhard and his family, for example, keep a container for recyclables only upstairs as a reminder to recycle and to make it convenient to bring the recyclable items to the recycling cart. “It’s so easy. We just make sure that everything is clean before we put it into the recycling cart,” Reed Ehrhard offered. Her sister Remy adds, “We have two recycling carts because we recycle more than we throw out.”
