    Awareness is great, I never realized so many companies participate in this program.. The benefits are so rewarding, helping save our planet and also giving to charity. We should all do the little we can to give back and this is a very affordable way to contribute. This is a must-share article with valuable information to know how and where to recycle household trash to earn donations for charities!

    As an eco warrior, it is great to find that there are programs where one can return your products for recycling. And even better then that they will make a charitable donation. That should be a great incentive for everybody to take part in a recycling program.

    Terracycle is doing an awesome job having partnered with so many brands to do recycling. Is this a global program, or is it very localised? Thank you for sharing this great innovation.

    I had no idea companies offered rewards programs for recycling their product packaging! This is an excellent idea; I’m so glad I found your site.

    Looking through your list, I see quite a few companies whose products I use right off the bat. I am definitely going to start taking advantage of at least some of these programs. I’m always the one around our house that harps on everyone making sure that all trash is rinsed out, put in its proper container etc. trying to do my part in keeping the planet a little less cluttered. Now I’ve found a few more ways I can help. Thanks so much!

    Hi Alyce, This is an awesome idea! And a win win situation as well! Is TerraCycle in other continents as well or is it only in America? Here in Scotland we have recycling points, you take unwanted stuff there but no reward or insensitive comes with you recycling. TerraCycle should think of going global. This is a really great idea! 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Juliet, Terracycle is in other parts of the world. When you go to their website, look for your country in the top right and click on it for more details!

    Hello, thanks for this fascinating list of companies that offer loyalty rewards just to keep our surrounding clean and is indeed a win-win-win strategy. The company will gain more awareness in the process of ensuring a tidy environment and the people get reward for the help they have done for the universe. Nothing can be so amazing than that. This website is very useful and I won’t hesitate to bookmark it for further reference. Whoever can tell, we might have disposable products materials we want to dispose in my household. These companies will be of great help rather than littering everywhere with dirts that can pose huge threat to many living organisms.

      Thanks Stella, I am really impressed that they have so many free recycling programs… it’s as easy as requesting an envelope and collecting your recyclables to mail back! It’s wonderful when it’s so easy to do the right thing for the planet and future generations!!

    This is a really important topic these days ! Very good to see people taking action to help the environment !

    But most people aren’t aware of the problem, or just don’t think about it. I think you should add a section explaining all the dangers of climate change and why we should help. 

    The overall article is very well explained and very good use of visuals!

    • Alyce says:

      You are right and that is a great idea… it’s hard to feel compelled to be a part of the solution when you don’t understand the problem! I will consider adding that information in a future update!

      As this website focuses on rewards programs, I chose to focus on ways to find rewards… most rewards these days are incentives for purchasing things, but this program is great in that you don’t have to buy a thing to be rewarded. It speaks to those who may only want to recycle if there is something in it for them… in this case, I don’t care why they are recycling, I am just happy that they are doing something that truly helps us all.

    This is an incredible article on an excellent site. Just wanted to get that on the record. I have not only bookmarked your site but put a shortcut on the desktop, easy to forget bookmarks. The world is getting itself into a pickle and we’ve no one to blame but ourselves. So it’s good to see, not only responsibility being taken, also plans being put in place. We can all say we’re going to do this and that but do we really ever make the effort or do we just sit back and think ‘someone else will do it’ or you might even be cynical and think that it’s not going to make a difference.

    44 million is a huge difference, which is undeniable. Kudos to this company for making the effort and to you for making this information available. Anything we can do to help our world situation the better. I for one will be going through each of the links to see if I’m able to contribute.

    Warm Regards,

      It’s great to see that so many companies provide an easy and free way to recycle things from home!

    Best Rewards Program is amazing information for me because I didn’t know there is a bunch of organizations ready to reward people from their refuse or throw away household items. An organization such as Arm & hammer gives away 100 points. There are amazingly a lot of them Solo Cup gives 100 points as well. I remember Quinn Snacks Buddy Fruit Tide. The point is not only recycling is monetized by a private individual it also promotes awareness on people to be kind to our environment by raising awareness not on the negative side but the positive side of it. People are encouraged to do their part to contribute with rewards to their chosen organizations or charities. It is a very useful information.

    • Alyce says:

      I like how it’s just good all around – you get rewarded for doing something that is already a great idea!

    Wow! These are pretty good options for recycling and a great way to support a charity of your choice! I had no idea that so many products can be used for recycling. When you consider that there are so may options to recycle, there really should be less waste around the house or even in the landfills. But not many people might be aware of the many options that are available as far as recycling goes. 

    This is definitely an eyeopener and recycling our waste takes such a small effort on our part. It’s a small act that can have really big consequences and ensure the health of the earth in future.

      Many of the products on this page are not accepted by local municipal recycling centers, so it’s great that these free mail-in programs are available!

    Hi! I have landed upon your site searching for rewards and I’m so glad I have found bestrewardsprograms. You have so many reward programs listed here that I have decided to bookmark and come and checkout every time you publish a new post!

    But in this post you have the best rewarding program I have read so far on your site. In this post you address a very important topic for me as is recycling. I hope many companies follow this path. And I’ll start right away. I feel it won’t be difficult for me to gather 10 lbs of GoGo squeeZ recycling material. I’m excited to participate.

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks Henry, I’m sure your charity of choice will be thrilled to receive the donation for your time!

    I am really impressed with what these guys are doing because like it or not this would play some role in keeping the environment clean and safe. Getting paid to recycle waste is just amazing. You help save the environment while also helping the companies to become more exposed. That is really a win win.
