Some neighborhoods don’t have free recycling pickup services but now, with the Ecycler site, there is no excuse not to recycle. The Ecycler site fulfills everyone’s green aspirations by connecting people who need a recycling service with those who want to do the recycling.

Basically, using the Ecycler site, eco-conscious consumers can find people in their communities who are ‘recycling entrepreneurs.’ These entrepreneurs get a customizable URL, downloadable personalized business cards and posters for publicity, while consumers with recyclables can simply choose from the list of entrepreneurs and arrange a pickup.

Environment Social networking Web 2.0 Site: Collect. Connect. Recycle.
http://ecycler.com/

According to Feedmyapp: Ecycler creates a new way to recycle by connecting people discarding cans, bottles and newspapers with those wishing to collect them.

Ecycler provides an alternative to the many U.S. households 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 provides an accountability tool by allowing collectors and discarders to rate their experiences with one another.

ecycler Featured on killerstartups.com

October 7th, 2009 No comments

We were featured on killerstartups.com today.

Bringing together those who want to give away recyclables and the ones who want to collect them is the service this site renders, and it is a valuable service any way you look at it. Through the site, any person who is interested in recycling can market himself and let others within his community know that he is willing to collect recyclables.

The team responsible for it cites the job creation aspect of eCycler as one of its main assets. That is, eCycler provides a mean for individuals or groups to become self-organized and collect recyclables from those that are willing to give them away. That means that Boy Scout Troops and Church groups among others could advertise themselves using the provided marketing materials, and let the community know they are recycling. People would then look for them as a viable alternative to curbside pickup. The group would raise money for its cause by collecting the recyclables, and every party is benefited by such an approach.

Right now, the site is accepting submissions by collectors who want to market their own recycling programs. If you are one, and the basic premise described above appealed to you, then dropping by the site is certainly worth considering.

Welcome to ecycler. We need collectors!

September 21st, 2009 No comments

Hello Everyone! To get ecycler going, we need collectors to sign up on the site and start marketing their own ecycler recycling programs. If you have recyclables to give away, please be patient as our base of collectors grows — and be sure to point potential collectors you know to the ecycler site.

ecycler.com is a new way to recycle. It is a website that brings together people giving away recyclables and those interested in collecting them.

Start your own recycling program in your area using the ecycler.com website. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme but a serious effort to help people recycle and make some money.

We are a new company looking for people who will become collectors and set up their own ecycler-based recycling programs in their community. Using the ecycler website, ecycler.com, you can print your own marketing posters, business cards and get people in your area to collect recyclables for you, such as from individual households, apartments, businesses, or groups that will save these materials for collection by you.

If there are people in your area interested in giving you recyclables they will contact you via the ecycler website. The site tracks your requests and allows you and others to rate the recycling pick ups.

Currently, the use of our website is free.

Sign-up directly on our site, ecycler.com!

ecycler Launched at TechCrunch50 DemoPit 2009

September 14th, 2009 No comments

Greentech company ecycler launched today at the TechCrunch50 Demo Pit.

Ecycler.com creates a new way to recycle by connecting people discarding recycled cans, bottles and newspapers with those wishing to collect them.

Ecycler provides an alternative to the many U.S. households that are not offered curb-side recycling.  It’s also an option for people who do have curb-side recycling but who want to have their recyclables picked up when and where they desire.

For the people collecting recyclables, ecycler provides an entrepreneurship opportunity.  Ecycler’s creators are responsible for operating and maintaining the site, but it will be driven by the individual collectors who establish their own ecycler recycling programs.  Collectors can create and market their own ecycler recycling programs by downloading personalized business cards and posters generated by ecycler.com and then posting them in public places.  Anyone who has access to the Internet can become an ecycler collector.

Discarders can do their part for the environment and for people in need of additional income by giving their recyclables to people who will then redeem the recycled goods for cash.  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 by listing how many recyclables they’ve given away through ecycler.com and on their own.

Ecycler.com provides an accountability tool by allowing collectors and discarders to rate their experiences with one another.

Ecycler was co-founded by Craig Robertson and Timothy Laurent, two web entrepreneurs with backgrounds in engineering and consulting.
