Trash & Recycling and Volunteers11 Jan 2011 12:39 pm

In partnership with RecycleBank, the company behind the Philadelphia Recycling Rewards program, RecycleNOW Philadelphia is now training community recycling activists to sign people up for the program so we can help more people recycle more material. Residents can help make a difference in their community by helping to sign-up neighbors, co-workers, friends, family, church members, reading club, or anyone else!

Why should you become a Community Recycling Activist?
1) You — and 12,000 recycling supporters like you – demanded RecycleBank! Now that the program is citywide, we need to make it successful by getting more people signed up.

2) Recycling Rewards are accumulated on a community basis, so the more of your neighbors that participate in the program, the more rewards you all receive!

3) Despite making tremendous strides in improving recycling in Philadelphia, 80% of residential waste is still going to landfills and incinerators. We must do better, and the rewards program provides the incentive that many people need to start recycling, or to recycle more.

Attend a Community Activist Training in your neighborhood where recycling experts will answer commonly asked questions, and provide you all the information and materials you need to help sign up others.
