ecycler is a new way to recycle! In an effort to spread the word about ecycler, we sponsored a giveaway. And, it was quite a success! We thank everyone who registered on as either a collector or a discarder.

So, what’s the difference between a collector and a discarder?

  • Collectors – Collectors are those who pick recyclables up from a business or house and then sell them to their local recyclable buyer.
  • Discarders – The discarders are those who give away recyclables.

We also thank everyone that made bonus entries by following us on twitter, tweeting about the giveaway, creating a blog post or commenting on the original story. Up for grabs was an Apple iPad that retails for $499.

We randomly selected a winner from all the new ecycler users that registered between October 25, 2010 and December 1, 2010 with their “bonus” entries. The result via was the number 762. We cross-referenced this number to our database and the winner was identified.

Who won?

Melissa D. from Washington State!

Melissa responded back to our communication, “I got your email this morning and am SUPER excited that I won!!” A huge congratulations to Melissa–your iPad, iPad case and ecycler reusable tote are on their way!
