How can you help?
First, we need everyone participating. You can sign up today at recyclebank.com/greenchoices.

Each month you report your recycling on Recyclebank's website you're helping our standings in the challenge.
$100,000 could make big difference
Just think what our community could do with a $100,000 grant. Perhaps solar panels for buildings. Or a sustainable community garden. Or a green curriculum in our schools. What we decide to do is up to us. And you can submit your ideas for a sustainability project or program so the reward is exactly what our community needs.
Earn rewards, too
When you recycle, you'll not only help our standings, you'll also earn Recyclebank Points good towards deals and discounts at more than 3,000 local and national businesses. Recyclebank is a free program that rewards you for taking everyday green actions, like recycling at home.
Do it for the community, do it for the planet
Recycling is one of the easiest ways we can help our community. It keeps valuable resources out of the landfills, saves energy, reduces pollution and conserves our natural resources. With this unique opportunity to get a $100,000 grant, it can also be very rewarding.
So sign up now, start recycling and be sure to make it count by reporting it at recyclebank.com/greenchoices. Together, we could get that $100,000 grant. And be sure to tell your friends and neighbors, too.
