[GreenYes] Re: Recycle Bank

Title: [GreenYes] Re: Recycle Bank

At the National Recycling Coalition conference in Pittsburgh last
month I attended a session on Incentives for Recycling and someone
from Recycle Bank presented, Lisa Pomerantz.  Some communities with
Recycle Bank that were discussed and some of the statistics Lisa
shared were:
--Wilmington, Delaware (first full city program, reached 95%
participation and 40% diversion)
--Everett, Massachusetts (went from 95 to 825 lbs/HH/yr.)
--Cherry Hill, New Jersey (uses a community reward model instead of
the individual incentives [I really like this])
--Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1st community to test Recycle Bank in

Lisa said that Recycle Bank is now in 10 states and claimed that the
communities using this system are averaging a 40% landfill diversion
rate.  I don't have specific contacts in these cities for you, but
hopefully this will be helpful.
