Super service and I love their special item pickups. Since I work from home I just put the fee on my company card, totally makes sense!

I started using this service about a month ago and I can't say enough about it. It's not super expensive (and if you are a single person and you don't think you could use it to it's full extent on your own, I'm sure you could band with a few neighbors and split it) and the stuff that they take! I hardly have any garbage anymore, and I feel good about the fact that I'm not contributing to toxic waste in landfills

I love how Ridwell is making it SO easy for folks to recycle items that require special trips to transfer and recycle stations. Excited for when they can provide it to apartment complexes so we can participate too!

I'm loving how easy it is to recycle plastic, batteries, old electronics, kids backpacks, and damaged clothing. I'm a big fan of this company and the problem they are solving.

I have no idea what these people do but everyone in the neighborhood has a box on their front step so it must be good right?

So easy to recycle SO much more than can go in the weekly recycling bin.

We've been Ridwell customers for about half a year now. We mostly use them for recycling of plastic films - which I wish the city would do - and they also pick up a variety of other items for reuse and recycling. They do what they say they do - we're satisfied customers.

Just signed up last week and so far I'm obsessed with filling up the bags they provide...especially the half garage full of Styrofoam that's been collecting. I also love the concept of the rotating categories (i.e. legos, corks, electrical cords, etc). No more saving all this up all year and making the dump run, hazardous waste run, etc to cut into precious weekend time. Well worth the investment! I also hear that they will soon be adding latex paint!!! Awesome.

Ridwell is amazing, and they recycle plastic film (the main reason I have them) -- this includes your Amazon Mailers! They also regularly collect batteries, light bulbs, "threads" (clothing), Styrofoam (fee is $9), and other items are rotated throughout the year: plastic forks etc., toner cartridges, toothpaste tubs, and tons of other things! I paid upfront and the entire year was only $120 (not including the Styrofoam pick ups).

What more is there to say??? I LOVE Ridwell and have been trying to get more of my friends to use it. What a brilliant idea and my only critique is I wish they had more categories! Everytime I see plastic film, I get a small "ting" of joy to put it in my Ridwell bag.
Got plastic picked up for free and was so grateful! Look forward to seeing them expand their services.

I signed up based liz’s recommendation. I’ve been gathering for my first pick up. Their website is very helpful.

Signed up for Ridwell last month and I love their service! Makes my hippy heart happy to know that they are recycling plastic and other things that can't get recycled curbside.

We just signed up for Ridwell and are so excited about it. The kids are even getting involved! I love not feeling guilty about disposing of plastic film, batteries, and more the wrong way. Phew.
Karina Kunins I just signed up! YAY!

I honestly think everyone in the city should use their services- genius! They take plastic film, batteries, clothing and lightbulbs every 2 weeks with a special rotating category to help a non profit group in need! Highly, highly recommend.

We love the service, they are so nice and make it very easy.

So, Ridwell is awesome. Since our municipal garbage and recycling systems won't dispose of a lot of stuff you need to get rid of -- batteries, lightbulbs, and most of all, plastic film -- I used to keep that stuff stashed up until finally we'd have to spend a Saturday bringing it to the appropriate places. But Ridwell comes and picks it up for you, disposes of it responsibly, and is really priced. They also, as a bonus, pick up something else each month that you may need to dispose of, such as used kids gear that you've been meaning to bring to the Goodwill. They make sure it gets re-used responsibly. What's more, the price is really reasonable (less than municipal garbage costs us, by my calculation). So they combine giving me back my Saturday with making me feel a little bit less bad about all our waste. And easy on the wallet. HIGHLY recommend.

Ridwell is great for the things that you can't recycle any other way. Have been using them for a few months and it's a great service.

Great way to responsibly recycle old batteries, build and those guilt-inducing styrofoam blocks. Local business, just getting started.

Ridwell is a great service that lets you recycle plastics and other material that would otherwise be trashed in a landfill.
