Blue Bin Instant Win to Begin

(April 26, 2011) - Blue Bin Instant Win begins the first week of May, and one lucky Oklahoma City customer could win a $100 Visa gift card just for properly filling and setting out a Little Blue recycling bin for collection.  It’s a year-long contest so there are 52 chances to win.

No entry forms needed.  Customers’ names will be electronically, randomly drawn from the Utility Customer Services data base.  Oklahoma City customers are already entered in the contest if they 1) receive utility bills from the City of Oklahoma and 2) are eligible to participate in the Curbside Recycling Program.

Each week, one customer’s name will be electronically drawn.  If that customer set out a Little Blue bin for collection that week, and it contains acceptable recyclables, then that customer will win a $100 Visa gift card. 

If the customer is declared a weekly winner, a hangtag will be left on the door. The hangtag can be redeemed for a $100 Visa gift card(s) at the Utility Customer Service Center at 420 W. Main, first floor.

If the person whose card is drawn does not properly fill and set out a Little Blue recycling bin that week, the $100 Visa gift card will roll to the next week, giving the next customer a chance to win two $100 Visa gift cards, and so on.  

Winners should keep up the recycling because it’s possible to win more than once. Names will stay in the electronic “hopper” until the contest ends in May 2012.

The Blue Bin Instant Win contest is sponsored by the City’s Solid Waste Management Division and its contracted collection vendor Waste Management of Oklahoma.
