Folsom, Calif.-based Waste Connections is teaming up with New York-based RecycleBank to provide recycling services to residents of 10 Denver suburbs and Colorado Springs, Colo.
The RecycleBank program encourages households to recycle by rewarding them with points based on the amount they recycle. The points are redeemable at local and national retailers, restaurants and grocery stores.
Over the next month, new 96-gallon recycling carts will be delivered to Waste Connections customers in the Denver suburbs and Colorado Springs area.
“By encouraging households to recycle with the added incentive of RecycleBank rewards, Waste Connections of Colorado collects more recyclables, reducing waste otherwise destined for landfill disposal,” said Waste Connections Central Regional Vice President Phil Rivard in a press release. “Moreover, it’s easier than ever for residents to recycle—the new program brings with it single-stream recycling, in which households can place all acceptable recycling materials into one cart without having to sort paper, plastic, tin and glass separately.”
