What is GreenMoney?
GreenMoney is an Australian first rewards program that allows residents and city workers to earn rewards for recycling and taking simple everyday green challenges.
How does it work?
As a member you earn rewards for recycling and being green. The more green actions you take at home, at work and around your community, the more exclusive discounts and rewards you earn. Best of all – you save money next time you shop!
How do I sign up?
It's FREE to become a member and get rewarded, however, membership is limited to exclusive partner councils, workplaces and buildings.
How do I earn reward points?
Household account holders
Once you've created your account, you will immediately start earning points by recycling each fortnight and taking other green actions.
Just put your household recyclable items in your yellow lidded bin. Points are equally distributed to each household based on the average weight of recyclables collected on your household's collection day – so the more your community or building recycles, the more you earn each fortnight – it's that simple!
Points can then be redeemed online for movie tickets, coffee, food and more at amazing venues near you!
City worker account holders (exclusive to the City of Melbourne)
Once you've created your account, you will immediately be able to start earning points by taking part in a range of green challenges.
You'll automatically earn points upon completing a challenge – it's that simple. Participate in three different types of challenges: 'learn and earn,' 'make a pledge' and 'take an action.' The more challenges you complete, the more you earn.
When you've earned enough green points, redeem online for movie tickets, coffee, food and more at amazing venues near you!
