Winston-Salem residents could win a Harris Teeter gift card for proper recycling during the Coca-Cola Recycle & Win promotion sponsored by Coca-Cola, Harris Teeter grocery stores and the city of Winston-Salem.

Each week starting Monday, July 9, through Dec. 28, six households in Winston-Salem with rollout recycling could win a $50 gift card if they are “caught” recycling properly. In addition, from July 9 through Sept. 28 all city residents can take an online pledge to recycle and have a chance to win a $10 Harris Teeter gift card.

To participate, residents with rollout recycling should pick up a “Give it Back” contest sticker at a Harris Teeter grocery store and place it on their blue rollout recycling cart. Every week, six carts with a Give it Back sticker will be randomly selected throughout Winston-Salem. If the cart contains only recyclable materials that have been properly prepared, that household will receive a $50 Harris Teeter gift card.

A mailer advertising the program incorrectly directs households to separate their paper recycling. No sorting is needed. All recyclables can be mixed together in the cart.

All residents in Winston-Salem, including residents in apartments or condominiums without rollout recycling, can go to to take an online pledge to recycle. Once residents submit their pledge they have a chance to instantly win a $10 Harris Teeter gift card. Five gift cards will be awarded each week in the Triad through Sept. 28. Residents can enter once a week.

Recycle & Win contests are also being held in Greensboro and High Point.
