Earth Day is in just a couple of days but people are already celebrating by recycling.

Kalix invited residents to bring cars full with recyclables, but with an incentive.

Typically if a resident brings in recyclables they get a penny token for every pound.

But when Earth Day comes, Kalix offers double tokens for everyone.

In return, those tokens can be used to buy items at Marketplace Foods.

“Plastic is made out of oil and to reuse plastic it’s a lot easier on the earth and a lot easier on companies and energy to reuse instead of make,” said Kirk Opstedal, Kalix Recycling Center Project Manager.

Double token recycling at Kalix continues on Saturday.
