Wipe Out Waste Challenge

What is the Wipe Out Waste Challenge?

A challenge to Mecklenburg County residents  to reduce, reuse and recycle waste. A prize will be given away twice a year. A winner will be chosen in a random drawing from all entries received electronically or via mail. The potential winner will be notified and the prize will be awarded via telephone or email. Chance of winning depends on total number of eligible entries received. Decisions of the judges are final.
