Reverse-vending start-up graduates to three new schools

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

Boston tech start-up, Greenbean Recycle, Inc., has announced three new Boston-area schools have joined its reverse-vending machine-based social game recycling program.

The three schools, Bentley University, Merrimack College and Wellesley College, will now have Greenbean reverse-vending machines, which allow users to direct the nickel deposits on returned beverage containers to student accounts, charities or a PayPal account. It also allows users to share their recycling statistics on social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

In addition, partnering with Boloco, Zipcar, and Honest Tea, Greenbean is offering prizes for school-wide participation with the RVMs. According to the company, the most recent challenge on Earth Day awarded prizes such as iTunes gift cards, public transit passes or a Nexus 7 tablet for recycling more than another campus.
