RecycleBank: Get Coupons For Recycling

Do you live in the Philly area? Well, if you do, you might want to consider signing up with RecycleBank. The concept is simple: It’s your trash, why not get something for it?
RecycleBank picks up your recyclables and rewards you with, among other offers, Starbucks coupons. While we haven’t tried it, (we live in New York, silly), we think the idea sounds nice.

Any happy customers out there? Any unhappy ones? Let us know what you think of RecycleBank.—MEGHANN MARCO

    I filled out there contact form and got a somewhat odd autoresponse that indicates they serve the following areas:
    Chestnut Hill
    West Oak Lane
    North Wales
    Clayton, NJ

    I live in a forward-thinking municipality that does not provide garbage collection services – residents have the freedom to shop for their own collection service. RecycleBank apparently teams up with municipalities or haulers (I thought they have their own trucks) and recommends you contact your concilman or waste removal company to ask them to work with RecycleBank. That’s unfortunate because I like being able to choose my own garbage collector, and I was hoping to be able to choose my own recycling collector as well…and get some money back on the deal.
