This paid piece is sponsored by Novak Sanitary Service.

Whether you’re preparing a holiday feast, grabbing a meal on the go or doing some gift shopping, recycling with Novak Sanitary Service can help you save along the way.

Earlier this year, Novak started a new partnership with Recycling Perks, a company that works with area businesses to offer you rewards every time you recycle.

It’s very simple for Novak customers to sign up. If you haven’t yet, click here.

Then, every time you recycle, the points start adding up. You receive 50 points each time recycling is collected.

“We’d like all our customers signed up because it’s free for you,” Novak general manager Mike Herbst said. “Our partner base has grown significantly, and that’s continuing to grow.”

The favorites

So far, one of the most popular rewards goes right back to lowering your garbage bill.

Novak customers can receive $5 off their trash bill just by redeeming 25 points.

“It saves our customers on service and is a good deal,” Herbst said. “That’s one of our heaviest-used perks.”

Another popular reward – easy to see why – is a coupon for buy-one-get-one loaves of Breadsmith bread. That’s just 25 points, too.

“Our partnership with Novak Sanitary’s Recycling Perks program is a win all around, supporting local business and community members by providing a reward for those who recycle,” said Susie Patrick, owner of Breadsmith in Sioux Falls.

The response from those who have redeemed their perks for Breadsmith bread has been very positive, and we are pleased to be a part of the program.”

Remember that when it comes time to add bread to the holiday meal!

The bigger impact

The best part about Recycling Perks: You save while local businesses receive support.

“That’s what it’s designed to do,” Herbst said. “It rewards people for recycling and in turn helps the community.”
