Annual America Recycles Day Contest

2020 America Recycles Day Contest - Show Us What's In Your Bin!

The Village of Weston is partnering again with Marathon County Solid Waste Department and Recycling Connections to hold a recycling contest, to run from November 15th - December 5th, to celebrate America Recycles Day (annually on Nov. 15th).

Typically, this contest was set up where during a recycling week, randomly selected household single-stream recycling carts would get inspected by the Advanced Disposal Driver.  Those addresses who passed inspection were put in a drawing to win prizes.

Due to COVID-19, we are changing it up, by opening it up to all Village of Weston residents, within single-family up to 4-unit apartments, to participate, and extending the contest out over a longer period of time.

Participating is easy!  All you need to do is take a picture of your recyclables within your single-stream recycling cart and either e-mail it or (paper) mail it to:
