OFFICIAL RecycleBank Codes and Discussion Thread
If you don't live in an area that participates, you can still sign up for a free account and earn rewards in other ways. I just stumbled upon a linked site called Kashless.org. They offer a forum to post and search for free items in your area. You can earn Recyclebank points in various ways on this site. The fastest way I've found to earn points is by inviting friends (i.e. submitting an email address). You earn 20 Recycle Bank points for each email addy you provide. I earned 240 points in under a minute. This will get me 24 free 2 liters of Coke! They have all kinds of things to redeem your rewards on, even gift cards for Walmart, Home Depot, iTunes & more!
So here's what you need to do...
1. Sign up for a RecycleBank.com account. You'll get 100 free points for signing up!
2. Sign up for a Kashless.com account.
3. You'll then link your Kashless account to your Recyclebank account by clicking on the Rewards section.
4. You'll also see in that section a link to all the ways you can earn points on Kashless. Like I said, emailing is the fastest, but you can also create saved searches, post items, create your profile, among other things.
5. It takes about 24 hours for your points to show up in your Recyclebank account. You can then redeem your points on the Recyclebank site. I got my reward coupons in the mail in about 2 weeks.
**UPDATE-Kashless no longer participating in Recycle Bank, but Recycle Bank is still a go!**

Q: Will my Recyclebank Points expire?
A: As long as your Recyclebank account is active at least once every twelve (12) months (meaning there's some points-earning or points-spending), your points won't expire. You'll continue to accrue points month-to-month and year-to-year, so you can use them for that perfect little something.
Alternative Method: (earn referral credits without harassing friends directly) Post 2625
As of 6/12/13:

Home Recycling Rewards
"Recyclebank partners with communities and waste haulers around the country to reward residents like you for recycling. We work with communities to find out how much recyclable material was collected. The collective weight is then converted to Recyclebank points and shared amongst all of the residents in the community that recycled. So, the more everyone recycles, the more points you earn!"
If you are in an area with Home Recycling, an orange banner saying "Don't miss out on even more points!" should appear at the top of your page. In addition, if you are eligible to get rewards for recycling at home, you should receive a letter from RB with your PIN, located in the upper right-hand corner.
If you think you are in an eligible area, but don't have a PIN, you can look up your address here (this link will only work if you're in an eligible area):
"Want to bring recycling rewards to your community? Let your voice be heard. Download one of our letters for your city or your hauler. You could also contact your city through Facebook or Twitter to ask them to sign up for our recycling rewards program."
Rewards - Gift Cards - If they don't appear in your account because you're not a home recycle member, call into RB and request the gift cards. thanks MoneyInMind
