Recycling

Here in Oregon we are charged 5 cents anytime we buy a bottle or can of soda, beer, whatever. There are recycling centers outside almost all grocery stores where you can turn them in.

Now, while I am trying to drink more water, both I and my partner drink soda. So we do recycle.What I'm going to do is cash in the tickets when I recycle and put that money in an envelope on the side. It'll be nice to actually SEE some money that we're putting aside.

That is a great idea- which Colorado had deposits, make it cleaner around here as well as make some money picking up cans.
