Turn Your Trash into Cash
How to recycle correctly and earn money in the process!
Recycling is truly awesome and offers substantial value to both you and the planet. First of all it helps create jobs which we can all agree is great for the economy. Also, it can be more cost effective than trash collection (read save money), reduces the need for new landfills, saves energy (again saves money), supplies valuable raw materials to industry, and adds significantly to the U.S. economy.
If saving the planet isn’t motivation enough perhaps the thrill of earning cash for your trash will entice you! That’s right; there are plenty of products that you use every day that can be recycled locally for cash. All those empty soda and beer cans, plastic water bottles and glass bottles that would ultimately end up in landfills is money in your pocket. The best part is that San Diego has tons of convenient recycling stations making it so simple to cash in.
