Last week, Mayor Nutter announced the official launch of Philadelphia Recycling Rewards after a pilot program in Strawberry Mansion. PRR is now available in North Philadelphia, Northern Liberties and Fairmount. Other areas of the city will be rolled out over the next few months; for information, visit phillyrecyclingpays.com.
Philadelphia Recycling Rewards is a partnership between the City of Philadelphia, the Streets Department and RecycleBank. Registered residents who recycle earn points that can be redeemed for groceries, gift cards, merchandise and entertainment at hundreds of participating local and national merchants.
