How to Make Money Recycling

Well, my mission today is to change your mind for some compelling reasons, and one of them is to make money.
THIS PAGE MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS; PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
Before telling you How to Make Money Recycling, I want to explain why we all should recycle our trash.
REASONS FOR RECYCLING WASTE
1. The main reason, improving our environment
According to a study conducted by the University of Yale reported that in 2013 landfills received 294 million tons of waste. With 316 million inhabitants in the United States, 1,871 pounds of waste per person in the year (5 lbs. per day).
For giving us a better idea, imagine a football field with the end zones, and we buried it with the trash produced in a year, that hole would be 100 miles deep! Too much, right? 🙁
2. Earn Money
By selling your recyclable garbage at the recycling centers, you will be able to make over $200 a year, or more! Depending on the amount of recyclable trash you generate in your home.
HOW TO MAKE MONEY RECYCLING
1. Separate your trash
Kind of trash we can sell at recycling centers
-All Plastic Bottles such as water bottle, juice, mineral water, carbonated drinks among others.
– Glass Bottles, like beer and other alcoholic beverages like “Coolers.”
– Aluminum Cans of carbonated and alcoholic beverages.
2. Identify the recycling centers near you
I can almost assure you every city in the world has at least one center where you could sell the aluminum cans, glass, and plastic bottles. Find one by searching recycling centers near you on the internet.
HOW TO ORGANIZE THE RECYCLING WASTE
If you are concerned about the mess with the bottles and cans, no worries, you can put them in containers as we do.
We use three containers, one for each kind of recyclable material such as plastic bottles, glass, and aluminum cans. Once they are full, I transfer them to trash bags. And I make sure they are enough to go to the center.
Finally, I go to the recycling center every two months due my family is small, so we do not generate as much trash.
These are the bins we use, and we got them on Amazon for a great price!
How I decided to Make Money Recycling my trash
When I moved to California, I didn’t have the culture of separating trash. It was here that I learned to do it and of its impact on our environment.
After a year recycling our trash, my husband and I realized how many plastic bottles were putting into our recycle bin. So it was at that moment that we asked ourselves how much money we could make by selling our recyclable trash.
However, we didn’t do it until our son was born; with the idea that every penny earned would go to a saving account for our son.
To this day we continue to carry out this task, but once our son is old enough, he will take the responsibility. Our intention is to teach him the value of money and work.
