Secrets of Success

Win Win Win



We have a single-stream recycling pick-up every two weeks - that means all cardboard, pasteboard, plastics (not bags, but bottles, milk jugs, etc), unbroken glass jars/bottles, aluminum & steel cans (we have a list!) can all be collected and put into the bin. Then it is weighed and we get "Recycle Bank Points" for it. WIN!

So...when I walk, I bring along bags and pick up recyclable items and carry them home. Sometimes it's extra "weight" (think strength training along with cardio, right?) - WIN!

...and then when I get home, it goes into the recycling bin, including newspapers. I track my points on their website ( and have already earned enough for a $10 gift card from Walmart. WIN!

Plus... There's a forth WIN - the local community looks just a little bit nicer! !WIN!
