It’s easy to just throw that recycled material in the trash or do the work sorting it out for the your city. But just taking a short drive could be how to make money with recycle on a monthly basis for your family!
I put this under coffee cash tab because we only recycle about $30 bucks worth of cans monthly, but those serious scrappers with trucks/trailers make so much more money per month picking up larger unwanted material!
Why recycle even if you make tons of money?
Well it just makes sense to reuse household material, the other solution seems to pollute our water and land! Plus every little bit helps and adds up to making this world a better place for our kids.
Not to mention the girls get a lesson on how to make money with a little incentive for doing something good for the environment around them.

What you can recycle from home
Plastic: Since plastic does not breakdown and can be reused in many ways this should be the #1 item collected and used conservatively. Items can range from plastic bottles, grocery bags, dixie cups, egg cartons and so on.
Glass: Some recycle centers want this separated by color for example brown, clear or green. Some items would be light bulbs, mirrors, old window glass etc.
Metal: These can be divided by ferrous metals that contain iron magnetic properties and non ferrous like aluminum. Things like food cans, aluminum foil and paint containers come to mind.
Paper: They say for every 4 foot stack of paper recycled we save a 40 foot fir tree, that should be motivation enough. Paper items we collect are newspapers, magazines, old phone books and drink cartons.

I have even met someone who takes his recycling material to the highest priced scrap center. Serious scrappers have a lot higher volume than me, so i can see how that would make a difference.
