Get Rewards for Recycling!

Waste Connections has partnered with Recycling Perks to reward households for recycling. No sorting necessary! The amount a household recycles is converted to Recycling Perks Points each time there is a pickup. Members can use their points to redeem the rewards for coupons, discounts and special deals with local vendors, retailers, restaurants, grocers and more.
