Dunwoody North Recycling Contest

On May 4, to May 16, 2009 some Dunwoody North neighbors who recycle have initiated a contest that will cover Briers North, Stonehenge Drive, Court and Way and Sudbury Rd. with Courts East and West. A packet of information will be hung on each mailbox on those Dunwoody North streets.

Households on those streets that are not already recycling can sign up for DeKalb County curbside recycling before May 16,2009 and be eligible for a drawing of gifts donated by local businesses. There are shopping cards from Kroger, free lawn cuts from Southern Seasons, free gym days at the local Jewish Community Center and gifts from the Medicine Shoppe.

All that new recyclers have to do to be in the drawing is to sign up with DeKalb County curbside recycling by May 16, using the information in their information packet.

Successive contests are planned until all of Dunwoody North has been covered.
