Recycle your PET for money
Created 1/1/2007 12:26:00 AM 
The biggest growth in bottled beverages isn't beer or soft drinks or juices; It's water. Bottled water is the single largest growth area among all beverages, that includes alcohol, juices and soft drinks. Per capita consumption has more than doubled over the last decade. While the recycling rate is extremely low, the demand from recyclers is actually quite high.
These so called PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) containers (fizzy drink bottles, cordial bottles, cooking oil bottles), pile up as mountains of waste.

Every woman has them: ill-fitting, uncomfortable, or just plain unflattering bras that sit in the back of their drawer collecting lint. Instead of keeping those over-the-shoulder boulder holders mothballed, or worse, consigning them to the dumpster, consider “recycling” them to raise money for breast cancer research.

 Cleaning gum off pavement takes money and energy. It’s usually done with high pressure steam, which can end up eroding the surface and shortening its lifecycle, taking up more money and energy in repairs and replacement.

Now we might be able to shoot two bird with one stone.
