Transform empty cans into bicycles

In conjunction with Williams Clean & Beautiful, Rim to Rim Cyclery is giving away two Free Agent BMX bicycles at the Jam Zone on July 12 to one boy and one girl in the community between the ages of 8 and 18.

The bicycles will go to the boy and girl that collect the most aluminum cans. The cans should be taken to Rim to Rim Cyclery, 116 S. First St. during regular business hours. Only cans packed in APS garbage bags will be accepted until the last day of the competition. No more cans will be accepted after 4 p.m. July 11. APS garbage bags can be picked up at the Visitor’s Center, Rim to Rim Cyclery or the Recreation Center.

In order to receive credit the cans must be completely smashed. The clerk will decide if the bag is full. A chart will be placed on the wall at the shop so everyone can see who is winning and how much harder they have to work to win the bicycles.

The cans will be given to a local church to recycle. The money will be used to help send kids to a summer camp.
