Recycle As You Shop (RAYS) is a program sponsored by Office Depot. The purpose of the program is to encourage both consumers and small businesses to recycle paper recyclables. The Program encourages shoppers “not to come in empty handed.” For every bag of acceptable items, the consumer receives $10 off qualifying purchases of $50 or more. Right now it is only available in Office Depot stores in Maryland
According to the RAYS website, here’s how it works:
1. Visit one of the 25 Maryland Office Depot stores
2. Look for the green recycling bin with the “Don’t Come In Empty-Handed” sign
3. Drop off a bag of Acceptable Paper Recyclables
4. Receive a coupon worth $10 off your qualifying* purchase of $50 or more
Acceptable items include: catalogs, magazines, newspapers, retail inserts, telephone directories, brochures, letters, office paper, envelopes, file folders, flattened boxes. For more info visit their site here.
