no more recycling powerade/gatorade bottles....

#127149 2 years, 5 months ago
....from home!

yea so this thought crossed my mind before but I never really fell into the idea...

you could only get 5 cents for those bottles in HI or ME and of course I'm going to ME to see Bobby solo and we go through soooo many gatorade/powerade bottles I figure it's time I start saving them up. I'll probably have at least 30 bux worth by may 1st then will just leave a little earlier then usual and stop on the way somewhere to deposit them.

So now I'm always going to every show that happens up in ME, even if its over a year apart, I'll just have a vehicle totally filled with empties.

what a great idea to come up with this morning....

Good idea! May you have better luck than Kramer and Newman did. And don't forget you can bring them to Michigan shows, too!

Just be careful when returning those empties....You don't want to damage your hands and jeopardize any future you might have had as a hand model.

im also fairly certain it is a felony to use another states redemption facilities and state funding for your returns. Because you are removing money from the state program but you never paid the five cent deposit, therefore in some states you are stealing.

plus, I am not sure that $30 is worth having to drive around with 600 empties in my car

wow that's pretty funny, never would of imagined it was against the law. I thought you pay that 5 cents no matter what not just in those states. it was just a random idea I thought of after a wake n bake - gotta admit I was pretty siked about it at first.

I'm glad I made this post before I had hundreds of empty containers kicking around here
