Recycling Smarts

At CLYNK, we welcome the opportunity to partner with schools in their efforts to educate students about recycling – and to facilitate fundraising for important school initiatives. Here are a few options available to you. Contact us anytime to learn more about which one will best meet your needs.

CLYNK for Schools Challenge: 2/1 – 3/31/2021

Marking its tenth year in Maine and fifth year in New York, the CLYNK for Schools Challenge is back by popular demand. This year more than ever, schools want to raise money for much needed funds while helping to save the environment. Schools will earn $.50 for every $1 raised (up to 20K in matching funds) through bottle and can redemption at CLYNK, plus the opportunity to earn other cash prizes promoting recycling and environmental awareness in our community.

For more information, contact Diane Gardner at dgardner@clynk.com.

CLYNK to Give program

In addition to traditional bottle drives, CLYNK also enables organizations through its CLYNK to Give program by providing bag tags and bags to participants for everyday collection – allowing year-round revenue to accumulate each time a full bag is returned to a CLYNK kiosk. Here’s how it works:

  • Communicate your container collection effort to potential participants
  • Provide account-specific CLYNK bag tags and bags to participants
  • Sign into your online account to track and communicate revenues

Green Team

Green Team Club

Since its inception, our Green Team program has helped interested educators and students to establish Green Team Clubs at schools in the communities we serve. Our downloadable Green Team Guide provides step-by-step instructions on bringing environmentally-conscious students together to become community recycling leaders and to actively pursue local, state and federal initiatives that increase recycling awareness and participation.

What Our Customers Say About Us

“CLYNK makes it easy, and I like that I can control when I get my money back. It’s like a savings account in some ways.”

“The second one… CLYNK makes it easy, and I like that I can control when I get my money back. It’s like a savings account in some ways.”

“I appreciate that you’ve essentially gamified recycling.”

“Great idea for business, environment, and everyone seems to win. This is a simple concept for consumers, suppliers, and producers that picks up all the pieces and the end product is returning the cash back so it can be spent over and over.”
