Yes, here in Canada we have depots that take copper wires, bottles and cans and recycle them for money. I take in a big bag of bottles and cans every second month and get $10 Canadian to add to my daughter's education fund.

Yes. I usually get around 300 pesos when I sell all our junk. There's this guy who goes around town buying junk. We usually sell him our stuff. We usually have a lot of empty bottles to sell. There was this one time where I almost sold around 1000 pesos, but then, we had like around 40 kilos of junk lying around.

i do. every end of the quarter, i also sell the old newspapers, bottles, and other recycleable materials that we kept in our house. it has been a habit to keep these items in good condition so that when we sell it to the junkshop, they can recycle the items.
