Being a Recycling Club Member

Once registered, you earn points by returning refundable beverage containers to your local depot. The depot cashier will give you your refund plus one point for every penny’s worth of the refund. For example, an aluminum can with a 5¢ refund is worth 5 points. Points can only be awarded on refundable beverage containers. Show your Recycling Club Membership Card or simply give the cashier your membership number and ask for your point voucher.

Save all your point vouchers in a safe place so you can keep track of your points. Points are not carried over from year to year! Look through the prize catalogue and see how many points you need for the prize(s) of your choice and order online from the Check/Redeem Points page.

You cannot collect points without a membership number. If you were a club member last year, you will need a new membership number this year.

If you live in a community without a recycling depot you will have to find a way to get containers to a participating recycling depot. (See #2 under Rules for Collecting Points)

Check the website often for updates!

 

Rules for Collecting Points

1.

Yukon residents between 4 and 16 years of age are eligible to become Club members. Schools, daycares and youth groups can join if your members are 4 to 16 years of age.

 

2.

Friends and relatives can also collect containers and points for you. Either go with them to the recycling depot and ask for a points coupon, or tell your friends your number so they can get a coupon for you when they turn in their containers.

 

3.

You will not be awarded points for containers obtained from businesses such as restaurants, bars, or stores or from groups and organizations who use them for their functions such as spots banquets or community events.

 

4.

You can’t transfer points to another membership number.

 

5.

Points are redeemable up to 200,000 points, but you can continue to collect points for the chance to win a grand prize (group memberships not eligible for grand prize draws).

 

6.

Points must be earned! Please don’t ask other depot customers for theirs.

 

7.

If you break the rules of the Recycling Club, you may lose your membership and forfeit any points earned.

 

8.

Recycling depot volunteers and employees and their families are not eligible for membership in the Recycling Club.

 

9.

Additional points cannot be purchased.

Claiming Prizes

Save your Recycling Club points until you have enough for a prize from the prize catalogue. You don’t have to wait until the end of the Club’s season to get prizes!

The points in your account are verified through Raven Recycling. You will receive a certificate (for one or more prizes of your choice) once your points are verified to confirm you have enough points.

Claim your prize by taking the certificate to the store printed on the front of the certificate. If you can’t make it to the participating store, you may contact Raven Recycling to arrange for shipping at your expense.

Make note of the expiry date on the prize certificate!
