There is not any set amount of time.  PM has a secret formula for calculating awards.  You would have to participate almost every day to be awarded.

Spending time on this forum is not time wasted.  You will learn how PM system works.  You will know what to do when something happens to your account.

Re: time needed for community rewards

I have found that sometimes even just a handful of really useful, well liked posts is enough to get you in the top 50%. Going beyond that takes some work. Especially because most people know the answer to most questions so to really be helpful you have to be one of the first people to answer.

Re: time needed for community rewards

Members on this board had been saying that people will make more money by collecting bottles than spending time on community reward.  Now with COVID-19, I am not sure whether this saying is still true or not.  Both may make the same - not much for the amount of time spent.

Yeah. Retailers don't seem interested in bottles at this time. Recyclers/bottle depots not sure yet. Unless others have found them still doing it.

Re: time needed for community rewards

Being a major proponent of Refuse, Reduce, Recycle I hadn’t thought about bottle deposit returns at this point in time. I wouldn’t be out doing unnecessary things like that currently anyway but I can see retailers not wanting to handle them either though the (normal) laws likely say they have to. I Will store them in garage for the future along with the other “depot only” recyclables in BC including styrofoam and most film/flexible plastic packaging. Curb-side recycling is ongoing, was picked up here yesterday.

The bottle depots are still open in our area as this is one of the main sources of income for some people. With small bottle deposits worth $0.10 now it helps even more.
