I've been recycling a lot lately.
I'm one of those people you see at the gas station or the park, busily digging through the trash in search of the Holy Grail of recyclers: glass bottles!
Actually, beer cans and water bottles are just fine, too. Some of the plastic bottles bring 10 cents, most only 5 cents. But hey, every little bit counts, right?
And for those who are too fastidous to dig through the trash, I've noticed that, especially on hot days, people have a strange tendency to buy a bottle of water or soda, take one or two big swigs, then chuck it to the ground - not even bothering to look for a trash can.
What slobs! But hey, more for us dainty types!
I don't really bring in a whole lot of cash this way, but it gives me an extra added incentive to go out and walk every day.
Recycling - Good for the bottle, good for my can!
