There are many motivators that will work besides greed.  Remember the group
of people you are working with.  Status and recognition come to mind as
excellent motivators off the top of my head.  

I bet there would be a rush to turn in space if a market were not a
possibility and for a limited time you could get a t-shirt and a coffee cup
that said "I helped save the Internet by returning 4,096 IP addresses!"

Other things that may be considered could be lifetime ARIN membership status
for POC's that return space, or perhaps trusted and expedited service or
privilege in some area within ARIN's domain?  Even something as simple as
getting an arin.net address to tie to the POC might make a difference.  

It doesn't take that big a push to get people to act responsibly and
ethically if that option is not swamped by gross financial incentive.
