RecycleBank Raises $28.25 million

RecycleBank, the recycling program company that was founded in Philly but later moved to New York, has raised $28.25 million,
according to PE Hub. The company had previously raised $32 million.
Its hard to root for a company that left Philly for New York, but they stiil have operations and people here.

Update: RecycleBank representatives tell me they have 32 employees in Philadelphia.
