Frequent Recycler: In a partnership with the City of Pearland Stella Roberts Recycling Center and sponsored by Emma's Mex Grill the frequent recyclers program rewards those who visit the center frequently.  Frequent Recyclers cards are available to visitors to the Recycling Center that bring their paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, metal cans, glass and plastic to the Center to be recycled.  The premise of the program is very simple; reward folks who recycle consistently and frequently. Customers will be given a card when they visit the Center and each visit after that the card will be punched. When the card has been punched 6 times the customer will be asked to fill in their name, address and phone number and turn the card into the recycling center staff. Once a quarter a name will be drawn and the winner will receive a gift certificate to the Olive Garden Restaurant in Pearland. The Olive Garden is located at 2808 Smith Ranch Rd. Pearland, TX 77584 and their phone number is 713-436-2813. Ask one of the center employees for a frequent recycler card today!
