recyPay pays you to recycle.
All recycling is done virtually.
recyPay gives you a $13.27 (USD) welcome bonus the first time you log in.
recyPay does not currently involve the use of VR technology, for example VR headsets, in any way.
recyPay helps you reuse certain plastics by refilling them with their original contents. For example, let's assume you use laundry detergent pods to do your laundry: After your pods are finished, recyPay sends you new ones -- provided you order for them -- that you can use to refill your laundry pods container. Hence, you do not have to buy a new container of pods. Instead, you reuse your current one by refilling it. Our hope is that you reuse your plastic containers until they are no longer reusable. Reusing plastics helps reduce plastic waste, decrease environmental pollution, and increase energy conservation.
Submit an item for recycling by scanning it.
If the item is unknown, you'll prompted to either identify it from a list of known items or add it.
After submission, your item is transferred to your Virtual Recycling Center (VRC.) If you don't have a VRC, it's saved until you create one.
A VRC contains a Virtual Battery. This battery provides the energy required to recycle. If the battery power is too low, it's impossible to recycle. To charge the battery, your footsteps are used. You also have the option to charge using a Virtual Battery Charger (VBC.) To do so, you turn on the VBC switch located next to your Virtual Battery. Fully charging the battery requires 73,920 footsteps.
Provided the Virtual Battery has enough power, recycling starts when the "Recycle" button located in the menu is tapped. It stops when any other button is tapped, when the app goes to the background, or when the battery's power becomes too low.
After your item has been recycled, $0.03 (USD) are added to your account balance. If the item was recycled using power generated by your footsteps (Recycled by you,) an additional $0.02 are added to your account balance. But if the item was recycled using power generated by someone else's footsteps, that person gets the $0.02.
For every $0.05 any legitimate recycling center in your community pays you for recycling, recyPay adds $0.01 to your account balance.
Given based on what you recycle.
Footstep Shop is a place for you to sell your footsteps.
recyMarathon rewards you for recycling the most on any given day. Your reward is randomly selected and added to your account balance.
