Enviroperks, The Program


IMPORTANT UPDATE

The City of Hollywood’s contract with EnviroPerks ended on March 31, 2020.

In a three-year contract EnviroPerks partnered with the City of Hollywood to encourage residential recycling throughout the city. Going forward the City has partnered with WastePro Rewards program to continue to provide incentivized recycling.

April 1, 2020, the City of Hollywood officially transitioned to WastePro Rewards. Through the WastePro Rewards program, residents will retain the total points they’ve accumulated during the EnviroPerks program. Residents will be able to redeem rewards under EnviroPerks until March 31, 2020. Furthermore, WastePro Rewards will have perks similar to those under EnviroPerks. Participating businesses can be found on the WastePro Rewards website, https://wasteprorewards.com/activate/.

City of Hollywood FL residents are invited to utilize the link below to create your new WastePro Rewards account. WastePro Rewards will credit your account with the same amount of points you had on the Recycling Perk program.

Select City of Hollywood.

For more information about the WastePro Rewards program, please contact Jennifer Goyette, 1-888-234-8211, Jennifer@rewardsforrecycling.com.

Through the EnviroPerks program more than 125 local businesses offered rewards to residents who recycled, residents redeemed rewards such as free food at some of their favorite restaurants, discounts at their favorite retailers, and more.

The EnviroPerks representative, Natasha Granado, participated in 35 neighborhood meetings, presentations at schools, City-sponsored events to promote the incentive program, educated residents about recycling right and living greener. “It has been a pleasure to work with the City of Hollywood Public Works and communications teams. It was like being a part of their team! I also loved running into residents who use our program and taking their input on what rewards to get next.”

It was a pleasure working with the EnviroPerks team, and to have a local person and a remote team to work with. Even though the program ends, those three years boosted our residents’ passion about living greener. The transition is going smoothly, and we hope residents will quickly adjust,” said Charles Lassiter, Assistant Director Public Works.

The problem with microplastics

When plastic enters our world, it never really goes away. From the day it is manufactured, plastic crosses into a never-ending cycle, continuously re-entering our lives. Plastic slowly breaks down over time into increasingly tinier pieces called microplastics, no larger than a grain of rice (less than 5mm). They never truly go away. These plastic pieces can be found in many aspects of our lives, and are so prevalent that they are hard to avoid.
