Get rewarded for your green efforts!

Recycle bank is a pretty cool program where you can get rewarded for your recycling efforts; either curbside or by recycling electronics and other items in your community.

With curbside recycling your cart will be weighed each week and you will earn points based on how much you recycle. The more you recycle the more you will earn! Bummer that this program is only available in a few select states (Colorado, Conneticut, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Virginia). I would love to see this program offered in my community!

You can recycle your old electronics by sending them to Gazelle or Flipswap. Just mail your old electronics and collect points! You can also recycle items in your communities (just check the Recycle Bank for more details).

Redeem the points you earn for rewards! If you sign up for a Recycle Bank account (anyone can sign up) you will earn 100 points just for doing so! You can redeem these points for rewards such as FREE Happy Baby Food (50 points), $1 off coke products coupon (10 points), and various other rewards including lots of grocery coupons.

Definitely an interesting program worth taking a look at. Thanks Common Sense With Money for sharing.
