Long Beach Residents Who Live Green May Win iPad

Sign up for the Recyclebank program by Oct. 15 for a chance to win an iPad.

Long Beach residents who sign up before Oct. 15 for a public-private program that rewards energy-savers and recyclers for their good deeds will have a chance at winning an Apple iPad.

"Recycling in Long Beach is now even more rewarding with Recyclebank," Mayor Bob Foster said. "Our partnership with Recyclebank will boost recycling rates in the city and help keep our beautiful community green for generations to come, while at the same time stimulating the local economy and delivering real value to residents of Long Beach."

To enter the giveaway and automatically start earning points for recycling, go to www.recyclebank.com/recycle.

Each time recycling is collected in a neighborhood, Recyclebank members get points based on the weight of the material collected. People also can earn points by doing things such as leasing solar panels for generating electricity at home and reporting efforts via the Recyclebank website.

Points can be used to shop at Recyclebank.com, which offers discounts from local businesses and national brands. Local reward partners include the Aquarium of the Pacific.

New York City-based Recyclebank operates in about 300 communities in the United States and the United Kingdom, with members typically earning points valued at $160 each year.
