Residents Turn Recyclebank Points into Real Dollars for Students

12 Rochester Hills Schools Selected as Green Schools Finalists

The City of Rochester Hills is proud to announce that 12 of the Rochester area schools are finalists for the Reyclebank Green Schools Program. This program allows schools to apply for up to $2500 to educate and motivate students to live a greener lifestyle.

Rochester Hills schools have been longtime participants in Recyclebank’s Green Schools Program. To date, Recyclebank has given over $25,000 to Rochester Community Schools. This money funded projects ranging from outdoor learning centers to community gardens.

For every 250 points donated, Recyclebank gives schools $1 that can be used toward their green project. To fully fund all 12 school projects, Recyclebank members need to donate 4.5 million points. Currently, Rochester Hills residents have more than 100 million unused points in their accounts.

“This is the eighth consecutive year that Rochester Hills schools have been recognized as a Green School,”  states Mayor Bryan K. Barnett. “Thanks to our residents generosity in donating their Recyclebank points, we have not lost an award yet.”
