[GreenYes] Re: RecycleBank

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.
