Dream Machine Recyclying = Get rewarded for Cans

January 29, 2012

Do you have a Dream Machine near you? These big blue machines are generally parked out front of Rite Aid, though in Charlotte you will also find one at Johnson & Wales University and the Cabarrus Convention Center. These machines take any aluminum can with a barcode (well, except some store brand cans) or any pet plastic bottle with a barcode (like a 20 oz bottle or a 2 liter bottle).

The 2 reasons why you should save & bring your cans to the Dream Machine:

1) Proceeds from the cans go to provide loans for veterans to start small businesses.

2) You get rewards. I have found that the coupons you can redeem your points for coupons similar to the Entertainment Book – you can get % of coupons from retailers, dining out coupons, or even coupons for attractions! About 10 cans will get you enough points for a coupon! I have gotten several buy-an-admission-get-one-admission-free coupons for local tourist sites through this site (click on “redeem my points”).

Grab your cans and bottles and throw them in! Facebook link for locations and more information:
