Recycle and Earn Rewards with RecycleBank

Cincinnati is enhancing their recycling service by partnering with RecycleBank – a rewards program that motivates people to take greener actions, like household recycling, by rewarding them with points that are redeemable online for rewards from local and national retailers, restaurants, pharmacies, grocers and more. Similar to frequent flier programs, the more a community recycles, the more RecycleBank Points participating households earn. Single or multi-family residences with Cincinnati curbside trash service are eligible to participate in the program free of charge.

RecycleBank partners with over 1,500 local and national businesses, including the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Visit RecycleBank’s website for a complete list of reward partners in your area. Register on their website, or call 1-888-727-2978, to create and account and redeem your rewards. Once you register with RecycleBank, points earned because of the amount of material your community recycles will automatically show up in your RecycleBank account. Points can then be redeemed for rewards at any RecycleBank rewards partner. Active participants have saved up to $200 a year by redeeming their points.

Households in Phases I & II of Cincinnati’s recycling program have received their new recycling carts. To find out which phase you are in and which week you will be picked up, check out the City’s enhanced recycling program overview at: or call 513-591-6000.
