Let alone there are several states that charge you a nickel for every can of soda, beer, etc, extra just to give you an incentive to return them to get your 5 cents back per can.

Well, other than plastics, where I live I take all my aluminum (3 full 40gal bags) for almost $100.
I have people haul away all the cardboard at the designated recycling spot for cardboard on my property (700+ storage units), and these people make a living doing that with cardboard.
I took in a Full size brass headboard a few years ago, and in return received over $85.
And have you seen the price for copper?!
I.E. - the materials are not "free", even ( & especially perhaps?) if the recycling program is run by your municipality.

And if your post was sarcastic...and after a reread it seems so. But, No I didn't think it was out of good conscience, which was why I made this post.
