This Recycling for Rewards program is designed so people who recycle also earn points to trade for 'rewards.' I've just joined because my Pennsylvania township has partnered with RecycleBank. The RecycleBank Home Recycling program is offered to households through the city governments and waste haulers that provide a community's recycling services. RecycleBank partners with governments and waste haulers to reward citizens for their recycling efforts. Visit Recycle Bank or call 866-563-0114 for more information.

Tool or Gardening Product

Battery-Powered Chain Saw
I'm a garden gadget gal. And I enjoy pruning. Very thick branches are a challenge, even with a good pruning saw. I can't pull-start a chain saw and don't usually have access to electricity for an electric saw. What's a gal to do? Use a light weight, battery-powered chain saw! I like my Remington 18 Volt Cordless Chain Saw ($99). Other brands are Black & Decker, Makita and Northern Tool.
