Waste Connections of Kansas would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide curbside solid waste and recycle services to your community.
We have been providing a Recycle Reward (RecycleBank) Program since January of 2009, and like everything that’s new the program was a success. Over fifty percent (50%) of our residential recycle customers would go online and redeem their points that they earned. We noticed a couple of years ago that our partnership with RecycleBank, and the rewards that were being offered were not being redeemed like they were when we first started the program in 2009, so we decided to change partners and use Recycling Perks for our new Reward Program. After ten (10) months of service there are less that four percent (4%) of our residential recycle customers are using the Program.
We are giving you notice effective May 31st will be the last day of the Recycling Perks Program. Recycling Perks will be contacting each customer that has signed up for the program online on April 29th and May 13th that the program will be ending May 31, 2019. Recycling Perks will mail out the same information to the customers that were not able to access the program online and had to use the program over the phone around the 1st of May. Recycling Perks will let everyone know that all the points they have earned will still available on their Recycling Perks account, and they will be able to use them until they run out.
We apologize for any inconvenience and please let your residents know we will continue to pick up your single steam recyclables every other week.
If you have any questions please give me a call.
