  A. Lee Graham Reporter   Going green promises another kind of green for the winner of a citywide recycling initiative.   Through a newly announced partnership among the city of Fort Worth, Waste Management and Recyclebank, residents are encouraged to enter two sweepstakes contests as they recycle.   The idea is to encourage more residents to recycle more efficiently and to recycle more, according to a city news release.   Through the Wanted sweepstakes program, all residents who recycle have a chance to win cash prizes each month, including a $2,000 grand prize. And the Green-Off contest will feature two families competing to boast the city’s greenest house and win prizes while they save money.   Those interested in participating in the Wanted sweepstakes have the chance to win a $2,000 grand prize and one of 100 MasterCard gift cards every month at incremental values of $10, $20 and $30. The sweepstakes is only open to Fort Worth residents. Prize winners will be announced each month, with the grand prize will be revealed at the end of the sweepstakes.   Residents may complete an entry form and learn more at www.recyclebank.com/WANTED. Registration is open from Sept. 20 to Dec. 19, 2013.   Through the Green-Off contest, two families will be chosen from random online entries to receive a home consultation by a city sustainability team, which will suggest ways to boost home sustainability through water and energy conservation, as well as increased recycling and waste reduction.  At the end of the contest, the family taking the greatest steps towards increasing their sustainability efforts will be the contest winner.   Families wanting to enter the contest must do so no later than October 10 by completing a form at www.FortWorthTexas.gov/GoGreen   lgraham@bizpress.net
