Recycling Collection takes place on Tuesdays
Rewards for Recycling
The City of Umatilla has teamed up with Waste Management and Recyclebank to reward you for home recycling. Recyclebank rewards you for taking everyday green actions—like recycling—with discounts and deals from more than 3,000 local and national businesses. On average, Recyclebank members can earn up to $165 in reward value through their annual recycling efforts.
Here’s how it works:
Simply register at Recyclebank.com/wm and follow the online prompts to verify your home address. You will need to enter a PIN, which you should have received in the mail. If you don’t have your PIN, don’t worry! You can request a PIN on the website and have it sent to you via text message or mail. Once you receive your PIN, go back to Recyclebank.com/wm and enter it to complete your registration. You can also call 1.888.727.2978 to register.
Recycle all that you can with your Waste Management recycling cart; it will be collected and weighed along with your neighborhood’s recycling. If you’re a Recyclebank member, you’ll earn points each time you bring your cart to the curb, which is based on the total amount your neighborhood recycled. You can also earn 10 bonus point each recycling pick-up week for reporting your recycling activity at Recyclebank.com or via our iPhone® or BlackBerry® applications, you earn your share of points for that pick-up.
In addition to your recycling points, there are many other ways to earn even MORE Recyclebank Points:
- Referring your friends and family
- Learning about ways to green your lifestyle
- Taking green pledges
The more points you earn, the more rewards you can get. Redeeming Recyclebank points for rewards can save residents money each time you shop at many national retailers and local businesses right here in Umatilla. Rewards range from magazine subscriptions to “buy one, get one” deals and gift cards to local businesses and national retailers. We believe that the Recyclebank program is a win-win-win for our residents, local businesses and the environment.
