Turn Recyclable Wastes into Cash

Turn wastes into cash? Is it possible? Yes, it has always been but with this recycling reward point system initiated by Kohijau-iCYCLE, what you will get is not cold hard cash but rewards in the form of shopping vouchers. Yay!

This Kohijau-iCYCLE recycling reward point system by Koperasi Alam Hijau Perak Bhd (Kohijau) has been introduced in Perak last year and is beginning to be embraced by the community. Let’s face it, we all must do our part to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (3R) to keep our earth green for future generations.

How does it work? First of all, register for a free account with iCYCLE. You will then receive a stack of iCYCLE barcode stickers through the mail.

Steps to take:
1. Sort out and clean your recyclable wastes
2. Separate them according to their categories, and pack the same category of wastes in one bag
3. Stick the iCYCLE barcodes on the bags
4. Deposit these bags of recyclable wastes in recycling bins at designated areas.

Click http://www.icycle-global.com/ to check for the location of these bins in Perak and other states.

When the bags from the recycling bins are collected and sorted out, your bar code will be scanned and reward points will be credited into your iCYCLE account, to be redeemed for shopping vouchers.

This is why it is so important to remember to stick those barcodes onto your bag(s) of recyclable wastes.

So, what are you waiting for? Register for an account and start recycling for cash!

  1. Wow, this is the first time I’m coming across such a reward system. It’s a great initiative to get people to start recycling!

  2. Thanks Emily. I am a fan of recycling. Done my registration immediately. Now waiting for my stickers. Lol.

  3. Wow, this is a different campaign, with barcode stickers. I think kids would love sticking those on the bags. And shopping vouchers? Yay!

  4. This is one of the very meaningful activities that hope it will become a lifestyle. In Japan, you it is a norm to segregate trashes. And even you have an old items, you have to clean it first before sending it to junkshops (which is another costs btw)

  5. This is cool and i love this idea. Now I can send some of my old clothes , magazine and even bottles for recycle.
