FREQUENT RECYCLERS
The Frequent Recyclers program rewards Pearland residents who recycle consistently and frequently at the Recycling Center. Eligible items include paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, metal cans, glass and plastic. Upon visiting the center, customers will be given a punch card and receive punches each visit thereafter. Once the card has been punched six times, the customer will be asked to turn in the card, complete with contact information, into the Recycling Center staff. Each quarter a name will be drawn and the winner will receive a gift certificate to the Pearland Olive Garden Restaurant (2808 Smith Ranch Road). The Frequent Recyclers program is in partnership with Keep Pearland Beautiful.
