    Some states dump millions into recycling programs that lose money. According to Google Search, 5 tons of #1 scrap plastic ( clean ) is about $350 wholesale on the open market.

    On a side note: purified and processed plastic pellets start at around $0.60 /lb wholesale .

    Here in Mesa Az they stopped buying plastic bottles. The city has said to throw glass bottles in the landfill. No one is buying. Shred is sad literally giving it away. I haul at least a ton at a time. Copper has picked up so I do sell my bare bright and make money. My local scrap yard used to be over full now it's near empty on average. What's going on in your neck of the woods?

    Exclamation

    Cardboard ( 600# bale ) $25 - minimum 6 bales (( last I looked ))
    Edit: Up the road from me is the Owens-Illinois plant - the guy on the phone said they pay $14 /ton for clean crushed clear glass - minimum is 1,000 tons.
