Do you participate in Recycling Rewards? If you have City trash service and haven’t signed up yet, go to and start earning rewards every time you recycle!

If you already participate, check out the 11 Philadelphia Schools selected by Recyclebank to raise money for an environmental project through points donations through their Green Schools Program. The program awards schools grant money for student projects that will make a positive environmental impact on their communities. Schools earn money based on point donations made to their project. The Green Schools Program partner, Domtar Corporation will donate an additional $500 to every school that raises at least 50% of their goal.

To encourage Philadelphians to donate their points, Philadelphia Streets Department Commissioner Tolson has provided an incentive so that anyone who donates at least 2,000 points can reserve a 32 gallon recycling bin!

Members of the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association’s Education Committee devoted Wednesday morning to tidying up Southwark School, 1835 S. Ninth St. The 10 residents moved furniture, organized the auditorium and a teacher resource room and touched up five bulletin boards.

You can see the bulletin boards here!
