Manhattan Paper Recycling Challenge: Pratt Industries, the paper recycling vendor used by the City, is offering up to $75,000 in prize money for the top paper and cardboard recyclers in Manhattan’s 12 community boards. The paper recycling challenge will take place during the 2020 fiscal year (July 1, 2019- June 30, 2020). Recycling statistics from Manhattan’s 12 community boards will be measured quarterly and annually, and then compared with their numbers from the current fiscal year. The top prize-winning community board for each quarter will get $5,000, with second place receiving $3,000 and third place receiving $2,000. The annual prizes are higher, with the first-place community board receiving $20,000, the runner up $10,000 and the third place $5,000. For more information click here.
