Saving with 6abc: Turn recycling into rewards
January 17, 2011 (WPVI) -- You probably recycle already, right? Well, did you know you can turn your recycling into rewards? Well, you can thanks to Recycle Bank.
Recycle Bank rewards you with points for recycling and reducing your trash.
And you can redeem those points for discounts on all kinds of things, such as purchases at Di Bruno Brothers and different shops in the Reading Terminal as well as retail shops like the Gap.
You can also redeem points for discounted or free admission to certain museums like the Franklin Institute.
"For recycling at home, consumers can receive one free admission to the Franklin Institute or they can receive up to a $2 discount on four tickets," Stacey Moyers of the Franklin Institute said.
You can sign up online or by phone.
Recycle Bank will then validate the information, set up your account, and send you a sticker. Then just sit back and see the savings roll in.
The equipment on the back of the recycling truck reads the sticker giving you points weekly for recycling and monthly if your trash has been reduced.
That translates into savings for consumers and cities which pay less for landfill costs.
Recycle Bank operates in Philadelphia and a number of other counties and municipalities in the tri-state area.
You can also earn points by sending in your old electronics.
