lol.. don't knock what you can get for recycling that stuff. Back when we had the farm my daughter wanted to make some extra money. I told her to go
around and ask neighbors if there was anything she could do to earn a bit of cash.
Crazy, but it was the local alcoholic who helped her. He had been throwing all his empty beer cans into a shed for years since they were recyclable,
instead of throwing them away. But since he was an alcoholic, he didn't do anything else with them.
He told her she could remove all the cans from that shed, and the money she made from the cans was hers. It took several trips to the recycling yard
in a loaded down truck and trailer.. but she made over 2,500 dollars, and that was after giving me my gas money back!
lol...he got his shed back, and she thought she was rich!
(I think she was about 11 years old at the time)
