The winner of Waste Manage-ment’s contest will get $5,000 for a community project. Contributed

Waste Management’s five-month recycling competition in Newcastle came to an end June 24, but the results were too close to call, said Jackie Lang, Waste Management director of communications.

The competition pitted the east and west sides of the city against each other in a battle to see which could increase its recycling rate the most. The winning side will receive $5,000 toward a community project.Both teams — The Waste Less Warriors of the east and The Recycling Renegades of the west — have steadily recycled more than 100 pounds per month throughout the competition.

“I’ve heard from residents who are signing up for smaller garbage containers and looking for every opportunity to make sure food and yard waste end up in the yard waste container rather than the garbage,” Councilwoman Carol Simpson said in a news release. “Many residents are clearly making a special effort to reduce waste and recycle more.”
