Recycle Bank offers a great and easy solution to recycle your home products and get rewarded for doing just that. They make recycling process so very easy. After signing up, you will be given a bar coded Recycle Bank container that is recorded by the recycling truck after each pickup. You just place all of your accepted recyclable items into the container, sign into your Recycle Bank account each week too view the amount of Recycle Bank Dollars you’ve earned and then cash in your rewards.
The amount you recycle is converted into ‘Recycle Bank Dollars’ which can be used at participating stores.
Which stores are participating?
Many stores are involved in the program such as: The Sharper Image, The Body Shop, Patagonia, 1-800 Flowers, Discovery Store, Starbucks, HP and MANY more.
Is there a cap on how much you can earn?
Yes, it’s 35 Recycle Dollars a month for recycling. $35 per month x 12 months a year = An extra $420 a year in your pocket.
Currently they are accepting cell phones which will earn you 10 Recycle Dollars but no other electronic equipment at this time. Recycle Bank is working on expanding their recycle collecting service to include e-waste, which will be extremely convenient for a lot of consumers. Since they aren’t accepting things like ‘e-waste’, pay attention to the restrictions of what you cannot recycle. Placing items they do not accept can negatively hurt the amount of Recycle Dollars earned.
