Recycling Perks: Earn Points for Recycling (Chesapeake, Suffolk & Richmond)

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

It’s been awhile since I mentioned this program, so here it is again.

I am thrilled to tell you about Recycling Perks.  Many of you have joined the program RecycleBank where I show you ways to earn points to redeem for coupons and gift cards.  Unfortunately, the RecycleBank recycling program is not valid in my area.  I wasn’t able to take advantage of earning points through my biweekly curb-side recycling collection.

Well, Recycling Perks DOES participate in my area!  You are eligible to sign up if you live in Chesapeake, Suffolk or Richmond.

I simply created an account which included my home address and # from my recycling bin.  The sign-up process was easy, and I earned points just for activating my account!  PLUS I earned an additional 50 points when I shared my last recycle collection date.

I’m still learning all the perks of this program, but I couldn’t wait to share with you all how to earn points just for putting your recycling bin out every other week.

The more you recycle, the more points you will earn.

How do I earn points for recycling?
In Chesapeake and Suffolk, VA, points are awarded the day following your normal collection day, every other week.  Points are based on participation which includes: recycling approved materials, placing your cart out for collection on the scheduled pick up day.

What if I am not in your service area?
If you are not currently in our service area, you may earn points for active participation in other Recycling Perks events. We expect to expand into new areas soon, Recycling Perks creates partnerships with recycling companies, municipalities and local businesses to offer rewards for recycling. Recycling Perks is available only to specific cities; please contact your municipal leaders to request the Recycling Perks incentive program.

    I have been participating in that in Chesapeake for about a year now. Love the Farm Fresh signature deli meat, and bagged salad B1G1 coupons. There are also some good freebies from Taylors I have yet to take advantage of. Love it
