Rewards for Recycling???
November 4th, 2011 10:29 AM

Have you ever wondered how you can make a difference?  With all the problems going on in the world right now, where do you start?  I was just reading about a way that you can earn rewards for something that you are probably already doing.  TFC Recycling is our major recycling company here in Hampton Roads.  They have created a subsidiary called Recycling Perks.  It is currently offered in Chesapeake and Suffolk.  They are focusing on Norfolk and Virginia Beach next.  Even if the program isn’t offered where you reside you can sign up for an account so you are ready when the program comes to your area.  Go to and open an account.  When your recyclables are picked up they are weighed.  Points are earned by participation and weight for acceptable items.  Local businesses participate by offering discounts as part of the rewards program.  Participants can cash in their points for the rewards and enjoy the services of local businesses.  It couldn’t be easier to earn discounts to local businesses for something that you are already doing.  The big picture is that by participating in the program you are helping to save the planet by reducing waste in landfills.  You are saving your city money and in turn you are saving taxes, by the cities reducing the amount of waste going to the landfills. Lastly, you are helping local businesses by using their services and in turn you are helping the local economy.  So I encourage you to participate today by signing up for an account, even if they are not servicing your area, you will receive notices from Recycle Perks about the program and when they plan to be in your area.  If you are a local businesses owner I encourage you to join the rewards program and offer discounts for your services.  This is great exposure to your company and shows that you care about our environment.
