An excerpt of their article titled: Online Marketplace for Recyclable Stuff

Living green used to be a hard thing but with all the technological advances, anyone can change their lifestyle for the better. People often have a hard time figuring out what to do with their recyclable items since not all the neighborhoods provide resources to take care of your recyclables. Ecycler is a tool that can help you with that. Using Ecycler you can list your recyclable stuff for free. Simply choose the kind of items you want to give away such plastic bottles, paper etc., select your area and Ecycler will show you a list of recyclers that can come pick up your recyclables for free. You can also specify if your items are bagged or not and also specify the quantity.

On the other hand, if you want to make some quick cash, you can find people who are giving away their recyclable items and pick them up. You can search for items in specific areas or simply post your listing specifying what kind of items you are interested in and how much you are willing to travel. You can then sell these items to a recycling plant and make money, while helping the planet at the same time. You can also register to keep track of how much you have recycled and share that info with your friends.
