Recyclebank has joined with Waste Connections of Colorado to provide its recycling services to residents in 10 Denver suburbs and Colorado Springs.

Recyclebank already has a presence in 20 states, as well as the United Kingdom.

Colorado is the first state in the Rocky Mountain Region to feature the Recyclebank program and Waste Connections of Colorado is the only hauler to offer the program in the state.

“Waste Connections of Colorado has truly exhibited environmental leadership, showing area residents that recycling is something that they can do today to truly make a difference tomorrow,” said Ron Gonen, Recyclebank’s co-founder and CEO.

Over the next month, new 96-gallon recycling carts will be delivered to Waste Connections customers in suburbs north of Denver—Brighton, Broomfield, Erie, Firestone, Frederick, Fort Lupton, Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, and Westminster—and in Colorado Springs and the surrounding cities of Fountain, Monument, and Peyton/Falcon. The recycling carts include an ID tag that matches the cart to the household address and account number.

Waste Connections trucks, retrofitted with special technology, track recycling activity, and the amount recycled is converted into Recyclebank Points.

Recyclebank services more than one million people across 20 states. By cumulative recycling efforts, those households have recycled more than 300,000 tons of material.

The rewards-for-recycling program begins Nov. 2, 2009.
