Greensboro, NC -- Hundreds flocked to Center City Park in downtown Greensboro Tuesday for another Keurig coffee maker giveaway.

The company started offering free coffee makers to people who bring their old ones in August.

The giveaway began at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, but people were lined up well before the start time. One woman told WFMY News 2 she started camping out at 3:00 a.m.

The coffee makers are free, but you must bring an old one to trade. That the deal with this "Trade-up to a Keurig Brewer" event.

There are some exceptions to this popular promotion. For example, current Kurig coffee maker owners cannot trade-up their brewer for a newer model.

To read all the rules and regulations, visit the company's website.

All the traded-in coffee makers will be recycled.

"The coffee pots will be placed in a giant machine and shredded into small pieces. The material will then be separated into copper, steel and plastic," said John Birkholz with Synergy Recycling in Greensboro.

Birkholz expects to collect about 10 tons of materials from Tuesday's event alone.

There will two other Triad "Trade-up" events:

Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 10AM - Held at Bur-Mil Park in Greensboro
Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at TBA - Held at Greensboro Coliseum

Keurig Officials are asking the public to visit the Keurig website, in case the location, date and times change.
