Olyns Newsletter

Inside Olyns | March 2022

Spring is around the corner, and we’re excited to introduce our new monthly newsletter! Olyns is a start up based in Campbell, California and we want our growing community (aka, you!) to know what’s happening in our world. Our March newsletter features Olyns at the Super Bowl, our top recyclers, a new map feature that lets you check the real time status of the Cube before you go to the store, and a chance to earn $5! Keep an eye on your inbox every month for Inside Olyns.

Olyns at Super Bowl LVI

Two Olyns recycling Cubes were featured in Pepsi’s Trash Talk activation at Super Bowl LVI in February in LA. About 150 football fans dropped by every hour - about 8000 in total -  to learn about recycling and to try out the Cubes. We couldn't be more proud. Go Team Olyns!

February's top three recyclers.

Recycling Heroes

Every month we’ll celebrate our top three recyclers by giving them a shout out in our newsletter. In February, Tommy, Rod, and Zhengtao each deposited over 1000 containers. One bottle at a time, they're helping to clean up our world - and so are you!

New Feature: Real Time Cube Status

We updated the map so it's easy to check the fill level of each Cube in real time! Now you can see how full each Cube is before you head out to recycle at Olyns. The color of the Olyns O works like a traffic signal:

  • Green: Open (Less than 80% full)
  • Orange: Open and filling up (80% - 99% full)
  • Red: Closed for maintenance (100% full)
  • Gray: Coming soon to this location.

Tap the Olyns O on the map for the Cube address and status. Fill level is updated every time someone makes a deposit, so you know the status of each Olyns Cube in real time.
