Ecycler.com creates a new way to recycle by connecting people discarding cans, bottles, newspapers and other recyclables with those wishing to collect them.
Ecycler provides an alternative to the many U.S. households, institutions and businesses that are not offered curb-side recycling. It's also an option for people who have to pay for curb-side recycling or who want to have their recyclables picked up when and where they desire.
For the individual (or group) collecting recyclables, ecycler provides an entrepreneurship opportunity. Ecycler is driven by these collectors who establish an ecycler recycling program in their community. Collectors can download personalized business cards and posters generated by ecycler.com and then post them in public places. Collector accounts also include a customizable ecycler URL, i.e., their profile page. Anyone who has access to the Internet can become an ecycler collector.
Discarders can do their part for the environment while at the same time helping collectors in need of additional income. The discarders’ recyclables are “collected” by these individuals or groups and redeemed for cash at a local recycling center. Ecycler supports this community building for groups such as the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, Church groups, social clubs, etc. by making available the same marketing materials used by individual collectors on ecycler.com.
Ecycler encourages people to discard their recyclables for free; however, discarders can request a portion of the proceeds from the collector. Discarders can track their carbon credits on the site. In addition to the automated calculation of materials recycled though ecycler.com, discarders have the option of listing how many recyclables they've given away on their own to be included in their total.
Ecycler.com provides an accountability tool by allowing collectors and discarders to rate their experiences with one another.
