Laugh all the way to the RecycleBank

If you live in Carmel or Fishers - you might qualify to get PAID for recycling!

It is a partnership between cities and Republic Services.  They measure the amount of waste residents recycle and then issue reward points.  The points can be redeemed online for things like groceries, gift cards, movie tickets or iPods.

It is an effort to motivate people to be aware and do more recycling.  Similar programs in other cities have earned residents as much as $200 in reward values.

If you are a Carmel or Fishers resident - go to and register.

Accepted recycling items are:

Glass (brown, green, clear and blue)

Metal cans

Plastics #1-7



To cash in your points - just go the Rewards Catalog and redeem your points.  You can also donate your points to the Green Schools Program which will benefit schools and encourage environmental education.
