Houston Mayor Bill White has announced a contest for additional ideas on how to recycle debris from Hurricane Ike. First prize for the most-useable idea will receive $10,000. Second Prize will receive $5,000, and third prize will receive $2,500.
“Composting, erosion control and fuel for boilers and electric generation are just some of the ideas we are pursuing,” White said, in a press release. “But we recognize that Houston is full of bright minds that can help us expand our options and we want to make use of that.”
