It’s easy and free! mygrcitypoints allows the community to earn points that convert into valuable offers available at participating local businesses.
Follow these three easy steps to make mygrcitypoints work for you:
REMEMBER - RECYCLING POINTS ARE BASED ON THE AVERAGE WEIGHT PER CART ON A NEIGHBORHOOD ROUTE. Each recycling truck has an assigned neighborhood route, and throughout its route, it is scanning RFID tags on carts and collecting material. At the end of the route, the weight of recyclable material in the truck is divided by the number of RFID tags scanned on the route, the average weight per cart is determined, and each participating household on that neighborhood route receives 10 points per pound based on the determined average.
So, your account’s points are based on an average weight per cart on the neighborhood route, not on individual cart weights. However, individuals do impact the end result. Encourage neighbors to get involved. If more individuals put out carts filled with more recyclables, the average will increase and the result will be more points in your account!
If you are a resident and do not have a Single Stream Recycling Cart request your cart from the Public Services Department at (616) 456-3232
