National America Recycles Day Draws Recycles

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON--  Several businesses offered one day rewards in honor of National America Recycles Day. 

Need a new printer cartridge?  Just bring in your old one to Cartridge World, recycle it, and the store gave you credit toward a new one.     

How about a cup of coffee?  Bring in your own cup, and Barracudas Coffee filled it up for free.

It might not be a holiday, but consumers are loving the discounts...
"We're senior citizens and we always like to find something that's free," says Edna Sehmel.  "I know years ago they said that when all the fast food gives you so much, that really increased in the landfills, which is too bad.   Packaging is way too much."

The coffee shop owner tells us the promotion attracted some new faces.
