Recycling For Cash

The next time you throw away a can think about the fact that you are throwing away cash. Saving cans is a very easy way to earn extra money. Check the yellow pages for a recycler. Look under 'recycling' or 'recycling services' to locate one in your area. Call and ask if they buy aluminum cans. If so, ask the price per pound. If you are lucky enough to have more than one in your listings, call around and see which one is paying the most. Take your cans to the recycler. Usually they will ask you to drive onto a scale. After you dump the cans, you drive back on the scale and the difference in weight is the amount you are paid. a check for your soda cans. Remember the more you recycle the more money you make. Make sure your trip to the recycling service is worth your time and money. Do you have a pile of scrap copper lying around from a home remodel, air conditioner replacement, or even an old radiator? The scrap could be in the form of copper wire or copper pipe. Have you thought about selling it for its scrap value but don't know where to start? To sell scrap copper place your copper in bags, boxes, or containers. Separate the different sizes according to the width of your copper since some copper will pay you more than others. Copper cords from electronics does not have to be stripped but usually a person will get less money for unstripped copper cords. Unstripped copper cords are cords that are copper on the inside but still have the rubber on the outside of the cord. Check the yellow pages or online for your local scrap metal recycling center and see who will pay the best price for scrap metal. Ask family members if they have old not working electronics that they can give you instead of trashing them.

You can buy at least 8 things for $40.00 instead of 1 jacket at a better name brand. wetseal.com Try Freecycle.org. There is usually a freecycle group for your town and people practically give away clothes that they don't want. You'd be surprised what people are willing to give away for free! 19
