I've been collecting and recycling bottles for like 9 months now, and i've gotten tired of it and kinda stopped since i recently got a job.
And by doing that, i've earned about $250 (Bit unsure due to the economic crisis and stuff), and i've been saving every penny since i started. (The money i've spent on music has come from other stuff)
So what should i do with all this money?

But i've been working my butt off to earn all this!
You get 7 cents for a can, 8 cents for a glass bottle, and 14 or 28 cents for a bottle, depending on the size.
And i've earned $250. That should give you an idea Wink

Buy the smallest Zimbabwean bills you can find with it. $1 trillion Zimbabwe is worth about $33 on the black market. With this you could fill a pool up with it and swim in money, thus propelling you to the level of unsurpassed ballerness that only rappers can achieve.
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal.

Personally I'd go and treat myself to something I have always wanted but couldn't justify it. Also what interests me is the environmental aspects of paying for recycling. I wish something similar would happen in the UK.
 
Here we go again, but when I was a lad jam jars where worth a penny and pop bottles had a returnable deposit on them. These days they just end up on the street along with all the other detritus from a grossly irresponsible society.
 
Well done anyway on your efforts. It is to be applauded. ClapClap

Yeah... Thanks!
Alot of times i've been thinking that it's not worth it. Sometimes it's not. When you for example dig deep in garbage cans only to earn a few cents.
It IS worth it however, when you find out that you're mum has $30 worth of bottles&cans at work that are just waiting to be taken care of. Big smile

Don't buy drugs. In your position I'd get a bunch of albums.

With 250 American Dollars or Euros you can have plenty of fun in argentina. My advice is to save a little more and spend some holidays in our country.

However... You only get a deposit from swedish bottles&cans. If that was what you meant.
And i wouldn't bother flying to Argentina anyway. That would be like 12+ hours on a plane Sleepy

Cause i'd be stuck on a plane, that's why. A train would be better. Atleast then i can see where i am, and not just clouds.
I think i'll invest them in CD's and vinyls. Filling gaps in my prog collection, and building a meaty Hard Rock collection! Embarrassed

Good Lord.

With all the beer I drink, I'd be rich.

Oh wait.  No I wouldn't.  I'd buy more beer.

Take it into the middle of a busy square and burn all of it as a statement.
