Log onto the Philly Recycling Pays Website to be eligible to win (or call 1-888-769-7960).   If you are already participating in the recycling awards program, just continue to set your recycling curbside and log-on to the website to ensure your account is activated.   You can also get additional entries by the following actions:

    1. Redeem your points for coupons online
    2. Recommend friends to sign up online

    The program was announced this morning at the Parkside ShopRight (at 52nd & W. Jefferson) with Philadelphia Streets Commissioner Clarena Tolson, RecycleBank Accounts Manager Denise McVeigh & Shoprite’s Director of Sustainability Dave Deets.  Tolson stated, “This is a win-win opportunity for all Philadelphia residents. By participating in the Recycle Rewards Program not only can you be rewarded for reducing your trash and increasing your recycling but now those same actions allow you an opportunity to win incredible prizes.”  

    City of Philadelphia and Recyclebank unveil the Philadelphia Recycling Rewards Sweepstakes at ShopRite, rewarding residents with prizes for recycling and reducing trash in Philadelphia.

    Proudly, Philly is the largest US city to reward its residents for their recycling efforts, and saves the city $70 for every ton of waste that’s diverted form a landfill. Good luck with this competition, readers! (And let us know if you win!)
