    #1 plastic bottles for 38 cents a pound??? wow, im trying to figure out the florida plastic market, and that right there makes me want to get it off the back burner and learn all I can soon because I give away all my plastic to the county in a recycle bin, but I have access to quite a bit, and I would rather make the money than give it to them haha

    Also ResourcefulRecycling are you in Michigan? I would think your per pound rate for #1 plastic bottles would be MUCH higher as you have a $.10 deposit on them....

    No more paper buyer here. Also place that buys glass and better prices on plastics limited hours open, pain in the ass, open when they have money to pay you... So no more glass or paper for me. And now taking my plastics to a place that pays less $.04 #2 plastic and $.15 #1 plastic other than water bottles. I can still get $.30 - $.40 for the plastic water and soda bottles at other places... Funny thing is a private land fill is offering $25 a ton for cardboard and $10 a ton for steel. Good to see other places are starting to buy even though the steel price is bad.

    Sell your glass liquor bottles on eBay, better than scrap price. Although it can be a fair amount of work for the value.

    Should save all the metal caps from glass beer bottles and sell them on eBay too.. People buy them for crafts.

    We still have strawberries and great seedless watermelons at the dollar store. My wife sells her plastic water bottles to the guy down town for .50 cents a pound. He buys aluminum cans if they are crushed for $1.10 a pound. $1.00 if not crushed. Sold my shred steel this morning for 3 cents a pound up from 2 1/2 cents last week. The guy at the yard told me copper has gone up significantly. He must know I have about 300 pounds of number one and about the same in number copper stashed. I have at least 500 pounds of insulated wire. Not going to sell it yet. No one here buys old plastic milk, glass or colored plastic containers. They all go in the city recycle bin. Thanks to the snowbirds-(winter visitors) prices for anything like pecans or citrus is sky high. I would stock up on pecans at .63 cents a pound. My wife bakes like crazy in the fall. People who have pecans growing in their yards here get anywhere from 5 to 6 bucks a pound from the snowbirds who love local grown stuff and pay up for it. I have a huge lemon tree that has lemons the size of grapefruits. I sell them two for a buck on Craigslist and sell them all.

    Price update...
    Cardboard $.01 lb.
    Glass jars and wine and liquor bottles $.03 lb.
    Glass beer bottles $.05 lb.
    #2 Plastic color $.12 lb.
    #2 Plastic clear / natural $.15 lb.
    #1 plastic other than beverage $.40 lb.
    #1 plastic beverage $.45 lb.
    Aluminum cans $.85 lb.

    Prices are better, but you need coupon, have to crush item, or bonus price day in order to get some of these prices...
