Celebrate Earth Day by signing up for recycling rewards

With Earth Day just around the corner on April 22, many of us are thinking about easy ways to help the environment. As most of you may know, Bay Village residents can get discounts and deals simply from participating in the Recyclebank rewards program through your home recycling.

Since the Recyclebank program launched last May, Bay Village residents have recycled over 471 tons of material. That’s equivalent to 3,017 newborn Orca whales or 710 SMART cars! Great job!

Additionally, Bay residents have earned over one-million Recyclebank points translating into thousands of dollars saved. On average, each resident can earn over $100 in reward value through their annual recycling efforts. These savings have also helped boost the local economy because nearly 50% of the rewards are redeemed locally right here in Bay Village at locations such as Bay Lanes, Discount Drug Mart, Wild Birds Unlimited and Bay Village True Value Hardware. 

Additionally, Bay and Westlake residents can be rewarded for other everyday green actions at Recyclebank.com. Some of these green actions include learning about water reduction and greener lifestyle habits, referring friends and family, sustainable product purchases, and some that will even earn you points if you pledge to recycle the packaging, like a Kashi cereal box.

The curbside recycling and Recyclebank program are in full swing in Bay Village, so if you’re not yet registered, what are you waiting for? Registration is free and easy to do – either visit Recyclebank.com or call 888-727-2978 today to get started. Don’t forget to follow the prompts to verify your address so you can get your 300 bonus points!

Great job again, Bay Village, in making a positive impact on your city and the world.
