The City of Austell has teamed up with Republic Services and
Recyclebank to reward you for home recycling. Recyclebank rewards you
for taking everyday green actions – like recycling – with discounts and
deals from more than 3,000 local and national businesses. On average,
Recyclebank members can earn up to $165 in reward value through their
annual recycling efforts.
Here is how it works:
Simply register at Recyclebank.com/recycle and follow the online
prompts to verify your home address. You will need to enter a PIN,
which you should have received in the mail. If you do not have your
PIN, do not worry! You can request a PIN on the website and have it
sent to you via text message or mail. Once you receive your PIN, go back
to Recyclebank.com/recycle and enter it to complete your registration.
You can also call 1-888-727-2978 to register.
Recycle all that you can with your Republic Services recycling cart;
it will be collected and weighed along with your neighborhood’s
recycling. If you are a Recyclebank member, you will earn points each
time you bring your cart to the curb and report your recycling activity
to Recyclebank. When you report your activity at Recyclebank.com or via
the iPhone® or BlackBerry® applications, you earn your share of points
for that pick-up, which is based on the total amount your neighborhood
Remember: In order to view and redeem your points, and to report that
you have recycled, you must register at Recyclebank.com/recycle or at
In addition to your recycling points, there are many other ways to earn even MORE Recyclebank Points:
- Referring your friends and family
- Learning about ways to green your lifestyle
- Taking green pledges
The more points you earn, the more rewards you can get. Redeeming
Recyclebank points for rewards can save residents money each time you
shop at many national retailers and local businesses right here in
Austell. Rewards range from magazine subscriptions to “buy one, get
one” deals and gift cards to local businesses and national retailers.
We believe that the Recyclebank program is a win-win-win for our
residents, local businesses, and the environment.
So do not wait another minute! Register today. You already recycle, now get rewarded for it!
