Recycling Will Be Rewarded With Gifts

I like this program. Most people will not do something unless there is a reward. Unfortunately, even with rewards, I know that some folks will not recycle.

Phoenix, AZ – Phoenix residents who properly recycle their discarded waste could be in line for gift cards, groceries and other rewards thanks to a new partnership with RecycleBank®.

RecycleBank is a national, nonprofit program that rewards households for recycling and other positive environmental contributions.

The city selected 110,000 households for Phase I of the RecycleBank rewards program, which is set to begin Nov. 30.

RecycleBank measures the amount of material recycled and then converts that amount into RecycleBank points that can be redeemed for rewards.

“We’ve set many goals in our 17-point plan to be the greenest city in America,” said Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. “RecycleBank will allow us to increase our recycling and lower our waste output, and at no cost to the city or our residents.”
