We are almost two months into the beta test of the ERbin recycling app in Weston, WI! Weston residents are amazing. We have about 60 testers who are scanning product UPC codes and text-searching for products and materials to learn what is actually acceptable in Weston recycle bins, at local alternative drop off sites, and what should just go in the trash.
Each time a tester scans one of the following products, ERbin is donating 50 cents to Recycling Connections, a central Wisconsin non-profit that is doing some recycling education and infrastructure analysis at Weston Elementary Schools. It’s a win-win-win-win-win…you get the point!
Here’s the list of Week 2 Scan Challenge products:
1. Kroger peaches, 15 oz
2. Jif creamy peanut butter, 40 oz
3. Welch’s concord grape jam, 30 oz
4. Country Hearth split top wheat bread
5. Cuties, 5lb bag
6. Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream, 1.5 quart
7. Smuckers Strawberry Jam, 18 oz
SCAN. RECYCLE. IMPACT. That’s the ERbin way!
Just scan the UPC barcode of any product AND BAM, see if it’s acceptable in your recycling bin, at a nearby alternative drop-off site, in your compost bin, or in your trash!
