    Some places buy old carpet and the under padding . Anyone doing home restorations or demos can get paid for it and not have to use your dumpster space . Hobo did you know fleece is made from plastic ? I'm still surprised .

    Anyway, in keeping with the thread, you can sell decent, natural cork to Yemm & Hart in Missouri.

    reBounces has a free mail-in service for old tennis balls.

    When I checked, these people were buying golf balls.

    Lastly, for those of us dealing with digital projectors/projection TV's, these guys will send you a prepaid label for your mercury lamps.

    Leads on buyers for vintage eyewear much appreciated, though.
