Greenopolis, a subsidiary of Waste Management, will soon launch a social recycling app for iOS and Android mobile devices called RecyclePix. The new app invites users to take pictures of themselves or their friends recycling wherever they are. Sharing and uploading the pics to Facebook and Twitter earns them points that can be redeemed for real rewards like discounts at Domino’s Pizza and exclusive deals at Marriott Hotels.

Greenopolis uses mobile devices and photo sharing to promote sustainable living among all ages. With a Facebook game, recycling kiosks, and now a mobile app, Greenopolis makes recycling fun and rewarding. Recyclepix’s description and app features appear below:
