Get Rewards for Recycling!

Waste Connections has partnered with RecycleBank to reward households for recycling. No sorting necessary! The amount a household recycles is converted to RecycleBank Points that are deposited into that household's RecycleBank account online each time there is a pickup. A recycling truck identifies the correct home and account by a unique ID tag placed on a home's recycling cart. With the RecycleBank Points deposited into their account, members can use their points to redeem for the rewards of their choice at over 1,500 local and national businesses.

*Disclaimer: RecycleBank is not affiliated with a financial institution.
