Santee Launches Recycling Rewards Program

Monday, May 13, 2013

Senior Management Analyst Ed Ruiz

Starting today, Santee residents can earn discounts at nearly 3,000 businesses or  redeem points for merchandise by participating in a new curbside recycling  rewards program.
The first step is for residents of single-family homes to sign up online at Recyclebank.com/wm
Apartment residents are not eligible because they do not use curbside trash service.

Residents can earn reward points for placing paper, cardboard, cans, aluminum and other recyclable materials in the blue cart provided to most households by Waste Management.
Reward points will be awarded based on the aggregate weight of recyclable materials collected from each neighborhood.

“The point of this program is to encourage more residents to recycle by providing them with money saving incentives,” said Santee Senior Management Analyst Ed Ruiz, who oversees the city’s recycling program.
“Regardless of any rewards, recycling is simply a good thing for our community and for our planet,” Ruiz said.  "Santee is proud to be the first city in San Diego County to launch this program."

Reward points can be used for groceries, merchandise and discounts from hundreds of national retailers as well as local businesses.
More information about the program is available online at www.recyclebank.com/wm
or by phone at 1-888-727-2978.
