Someone asked a question on eco boxes in the comments, so I thought I’d write a post with info on recycling and eco boxes. Recycling was introduced in Pet Society on April 9, 2009.
How recycling works:
If you have an item you don’t like or need in your storage chest, then you can drag it into the green recycling box to receive recycling points. You will receive twice as many recycling points for an item as the item’s coin value. For instance, if you recycle a retro green polo, which costs 200 coins, you’ll receive 400 recycling points.
If you want to calculate the number of expected recycling points, I’ve made two equations that are helpful. The calculations are most accurate for store-bought items, and sometimes they calculations are just 1 or 2 coins off. For fish (and pond items), you’ll receive slightly more recycling points that expected from the equations below.
To calculate your recycle points, you can use the following formulas:
Let R = recycle points, P=store price, and S=re-sale price.
The two formulas to calculate recycling points are: R=2P or R=6S.
(meaning recycling points are twice the store price, or recycling points are six times the re-sale price).
Once you collect 10,000 recycling points, you can cash out to receive one small eco box. You need to collect 20,000 recycling points for a medium eco box, and 30,000 recycling points for a large eco box. When you cash out, the recycling points will be deducted from your total to bu the eco box you’ve chosen.
From each type of eco box (small, medium, large), you have random chance of receiving one of five items. The items found in each type of eco box are shown below:
If you receive an item from the eco box that you don’t like, you can recycle or sell the item. Keep in mind that you won’t get the same number of recycling points that you used to buy the eco box. For instance, the seedling doll costs 10,000 recycling points, but if you recycle a seedling doll, you’ll only get 5,000 recycling points back, or you can sell it for 833 coins.
