Recyclebank Takes Your Recyclables and Gives You Rewards

Recyclebank is an innovative rewards program that turns your everyday recyclables into points redeemable for gift certificates and discounts at retailers. You can also earn points by taking on challenges, playing green-themed games, and more.

Recyclebank will take your recyclables (all paper, plastic, cans, etc. in one bin), weigh it, and award you points for retailer discounts. Although membership is open to US and Canadian residents, not all communities are covered — you have to register to find out if yours is.

Even if you can't get the rewards for home recycling, there are other opportunities to earn points, many of them pretty simple and quick, like taking a quiz about organic labels.

The rewards aren't huge (think 20% off at or free cans of cat food), but the program still offers motivation to do more earth-friendly things.
