Los Angeles' new RecycleBank program
For those of you who need a little incentive to recycle… RecycleBank launches April 5th in Los Angeles, paying cash to single-family homes with extra goods to dispose of. One of the advantages of the program is that it requires no extra bins or effort: RecycleBank simply outfits your existing bins with a special ID tag. When the bins are weighed each time they are collected, the family accrues points which can be redeemed at local retail outlets (encouraging local commerce!). RecycleBank has already had success with the program in over 1000 commercial locations. The company hopes to roll out the program to over 700,000 families in the Los Angeles are in the next year.
