For a few years I collected cans from recycling, getting the cans mostly from the break room at work and from some relatives who set them aside. It originally started as a means to just set aside a little money for coin collecting, though over the past couple of years my goal has mostly been to get money for table top gaming. It’s not a particularly fruitful pursuit: every six to nine months I was taking them to the recycling center, and getting between $30 and $60 per trip.
However, we have decided that garage space is too much at a premium at our house, so Friday was my last trip. This was $33 worth of cans (about 52 pounds).
I have given my can bin to my co-worker, Carolyn, who wants to take over.
