I'm thankful for cleaners who separate our trash for recycling. Do do it for a small monetary gain, but I still think it is something worth applauding.
I just read about RecycleBank, they actually give points for recycling and the points can be used to redeem rewards. I wish we could have something like that here. For now, I'm happy bringing my recyclables to the kidney dialysis association. They raise funds for people in need of dialysis but cannot afford to pay exorbitant prices.
