business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Charlotte Observer reports that Charlotte Center City Partners “plus the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, Coca-Cola and Harris Teeter all announced a stepped-up recycling initiative for uptown. Helped by some money from a $6.4 million Energy Block Grant the city received, they're installing 15 recycling bins along Tryon Street between First and Eighth streets. In addition, an incognito Prize Patrol will be prowling, and if they see you recycling you may win a $25 Harris Teeter gift card. Further, Bank of America is providing 10 recycling containers for the uptown Transit Center in coming weeks.”
