    Shredded paper is not recyclable? Why?

    I recycled long before there were any rewards but I believe if rewards are offered they should be genuine. Also it is natural to be disappointed when the rewards on offer are less desirable than in the past. That said, I'm enjoying the magazines.

      That's the only thing worth it.. when I started, they truly have points for the weight in your bin.. now it's just a website for magazines and products no one has ever heard of.. But I'll always recycle!

    It’s interesting that we are being a perk, a free perk for recycling, something we would be doing anyway, and all we do is whine and complain....

    Why am I limited to only a few reward selections?
  • VICKI R. 18 days ago
    I have noticed that also that the prizes are not as plentiful as they use to be. I know that once a year they have been having gift cards so I just collect all the points I can until than. I have never won but I enter every time. Good Luck

      And most free prizes are print magazines, which are recycleable (fine) but absorb trees & cause carbon emissions to deliver by snail mail. IRONIC.
