Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”- Malcolm X

Eyerecycle believes in educating students about what is happening in today’s world so they can be a part of the solution.

Our in-school recycling collection program offers a hand-on-approach to recycling initiatives. For a $89 start-up fee, we offer collection boxes, bags and flyer with your school logo to display for collection information. Students take on the role of counting, sorting and communicating their findings to the school. They begin to understand the value of earning money to put towards their goals. Students begin to understand how much waste is generated by their community.They learn where it goes and what steps they can take to reduce their environmental impact. Your school collects, we pick up and pay you the full redemption value. The funds are sent within 30 days which can be put into school reserves, sustainability initiatives, sports teams or any other projects.


“EyeRecycle’s environmental education program is an amazing opportunity for our middle school students to learn about the benefits of recycling, how they can better the Earth, and what a redemption center does. Students are also inspired to actively participate in something bigger than themselves, such as bringing in their aluminum cans and plastic bottles to school and recycling them.”
