More Info creates a new way to recycle by connecting people discarding recyclables (cans,
bottles, newspapers, etc.) with those wishing to collect them.

Ecycler provides an alternative to the many U.S. households, institutions or businesses that are
not offered curb-side recycling. It's also an option for people who have to pay for curb-side
recycling or who want to have their recyclables picked up when and where they desire.

For the individual (or group) collecting recyclables, ecycler provides an entrepreneurship
opportunity. Ecycler is driven by these collectors who establish an ecycler recycling program in
their community. Collectors can download personalized business cards and posters generated by and then post them in public places. Collector accounts also include a customizable
ecycler URL, i.e., their profile page. Anyone who has access to the Internet can become an
ecycler collector.

Discarders can do their part for the environment while at the same time helping collectors in need
of additional income. The discarders’ recyclables are “collected” by these individuals or groups
and redeemed for cash at a local recycling center. Ecycler supports this community building for
groups such as the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, Church groups, social clubs, etc. by making
available the same marketing materials used by individual collectors on

Ecycler encourages people to discard their recyclables for free; however, discarders can request
a portion of the proceeds from the collector. Discarders can track their carbon credits on the site.
In addition to the automated calculation of materials recycled though, discarders
have the option of listing how many recyclables they've given away on their own to be included in
their total. provides an accountability tool by allowing collectors and discarders to rate their
experiences with one another.
