Get your kids involved in recycling

I'm lucky that my city has a great recycling program. They pick up recyclables at the curb each week, and I don't even have to sort them.
Despite this terrific program, I told my kids that if they sort and bag the recyclables that have redemption values, we'll take those recyclables to the local collection point, and they can keep the money.
This has turned my kids into great recyclers. If we're out and they have sodas, they bring the cans home to recycle rather than just throwing them away in the trash at the park.
I'm a firm believer that habits formed in childhood will last a lifetime. Now I'm trying to help my kids develop greener habits.
How are you developing greener habits in your kids? I'd love to hear your ideas.
