Places to recycle plastic bottles

Recycling not only benefits the environment; recycling certain items can also benefit your pocketbook by providing you with extra spending money.  The easiest items to recycle for money are plastic bottles, which can be turned in at recycling centers that pay you by the weight or number of items turned in.

Recycling is important when you think that it takes between 100 and 1000 years for plastic to decompose in the landfill. Plastic is also made from oil; the same oil that is in high demand to make gasoline. Recycling is something simple that can be done in your home and can generate income for your household.

1.Identify the types of plastic used in your home.

3. Place the bins in a convenient location out of the way.

4. Fill the bins with your used plastic products that have been rinsed with water.

5. Locate your local recycling center using the phone book or Internet.

6. Transport the bins to your local recycling center once they are full.

7. Collect payment from the recycling center for your plastic.

Turn your collection of plastic bottles into your own mini garden.

While this won’t be a fast way to make money, it can be a long-lasting one. Plant small herbs in the bottles and pinch off the results into small baggies. Sell fresh spices and herbs at markets, then replenish your supply as it continues to grow.
