You might want to check out Recycle Bank to get some great high value coupons or other rewards, just for recycling!

They have a few different programs that you can earn points with:

  1. Curbside Recycling for various cities report your recylcing
  2. Recycle Electronics through Gazelle and Flipswap
  3. A rewards Visa Card

If you sign up (it’s free don’t worry) you will get 100 points.  That gets you some great rewards already!

(thanks Common Sense with Money!)

      The curbside recycling website is a bit confusing. We have recycling here where I live but it doesn’t have that name, and there is a fee we pay to the city (mandatory) for the service. Can’t find any info. on the site about how that exactly works or how to get it set up. If I was rating the site on a user friendly rating I would give it a C+ I also could not find the message center/community for me to leave a messsage, only a link to submit a question.

        Update to locations that qualify for this particular curbside rewards program:
        *If* you live in the following communities, you can contact these haulers for the RecycleBank service:


        Well, that should’ve been in the sign-up process rather than after. Georgia doesn’t appear to be included.

          You can still sign up and get the 100 free points though and get a few coupons :)

          • Carrie

            Sorry Jenny, I know that came across whiny. Was just frustrated at the recycle site and yes, I will put the coupons I get from the 100 points to good use when I settle on what is the wisest choice for the coupons!

    • Penny

      There is a $5 off $50 for Publix, you can get two of them with the 100 points:-)

      • Carrie

        Okay… now that’s what I call a great deal! The light at the end of the tunnel shines brightly!

        Just love my Publix and all the people there.
        Thanks for the time spent finding that! :)

      • Carrie

        Where exactly are you finding the Publix $5/$50?

        It is not under the P category where I looked first, nor Grocery category, nor under sub section supermarket (they only have Sam’s club).

        • Gina

          I am having trouble finding it too. I wonder if it is only available for certain zip codes.

    • ashley

      Yeah! Loving this already! I got $17 in Coke coupons and 2 CVS Green Tags(B1G1)!!! (I own 2 residences so 2 accounts)!!

    • Buffy

      I tried to sign up and it keeps telling me my email address is invailid…anyone else having this problem?

      • Gina

        It did that for me too. I went back and changed it to all lowercase letters and it worked. You may want to try that.

    • The coupons vary according to zip code! I was able to get the $5/$50 Publix coupons as well, but I know others who weren’t (I live in FL Panhandle).

    • Shawna

      I have been using Recycle Bank for about 2 months through the curbside program in Houston (there’s a computer chip on my containter). I ordered my first coupons last week and received them in the mail today….
      $5 off Huggies coupon and a $4/20 CVS

    • Jennifer

      This site is really confusing. I would really like to start this, but when I signed up, it doesn’t say anything about when they come pick up, what to recycle, if it costs ect… it says I have to activate but when I tried to do that it says I already have an acct…. I am so confused@!!!

    • Thanks for letting us know about this deal. I am unable to do the curbside rewards as I live in FL. But I was able to get 2 5/50 publix coupons!! This is a great deal. Plus I will be watching now for when Florida is included!

    • Jennifer

      Thanks for this!

      I signed up and got a free year of pogo and a coupon for a free bottle of seventh generation dish soap.


    • DL

      Has anyone actually ever received their coupons? I ordered the coke coupons and sent in an old cell phone for 1400 points but I haven’t received the coupons yet or has my account been credited with the cell phone points. Just wondering how long it takes.
