Need Recycling Ideas

February 10, 2007 11:31am CST
Looking around my kitchen I realized I have a ton of stuff that could be recycled. I have plastic grocery bags (I use them as trash bags but have more than I use each week), I have the plastic boxes the cherry tomatoes come in, I have tin cans, I have boxes that various products come in (pasta, rice-a-roni, etc.) As a student, I don't have a ton of money and am always looking to make more. So what can I do with these things that would allow me to make some money off this leftover stuff? Craft ideas (that people would buy) or other ideas are welcome.

If you have clutter and/or items around your house you dont want to be bothered with selling or taking to the dump - then Freecycle is for you at www.freecycle.org for a Freecycle group in your area. Freecycle is international. Recycle items to avoid overfilling the garbage dumps and make space in your home. One man's trash is another man;s treasure" truely applies here. I have given away so many things that I almost trashed that someone wanted and even came and carted it away. You can put in requests, too, and from there I received a free handicapped electric lift recliner worth over $400.00 someone didnt need anymore! The only requirement is that you cant give away forbidden items like explosives and such and everything must be FREE, you cant barter, exchange or sell. Try it yourself!

I've seen that site before, but somehow never thought of it applying to what I have. I will check it out. Thank you.
