Answer:


How do I earn RecycleBank points?


 

All participants in the Curbside Rewards program earn points for the total amount of recyclables collected. Each pound recycled earns 2.50 points. For example, if 20,000 pounds of recyclables are collected in the community and there are 1,000 participants in the community, each participant gets 50 points per service. (20,000 lbs x 2.5 points/lbs = 50,000 points divided by 1,000 participants = 50 points per service.) Remember to encourage your neighbors to recycle as much as possible so everyone earns more points.
