[GreenYes] Re: RecycleBank

This discussion is useful to us as we've been considering getting involved
with Recycle Banks program. Overall I like what I see and I think it's a
win win for everyone if folks can choose to buy recycled products from a
company like ours with Recycle Bank points.

Although I have to say I'm not that impressed with single stream, especially
in non-bottle-bill states. But hey if it works it works.

Close the loop: recycling works when we buy recycled.

The incentive is not to consume more, but to recycle more of what they are
already consuming.

As was already mentioned, much of the success has been in the working class
neighborhoods where grocery coupons are chosen as the "reward."
RecycleBank also gives the option to donate your reward. A few towns in the
Southern part of NJ recently signed on to the RecycleBank system. I can put
you in touch with the appropriate people there if there is interest. Our
office visited the facility in Philly where RecycleBank's material was
sorted about a year ago. It is a single stream facility, but they also take
dual stream. I believe the customer can choose which collection route they
want to take.
