After living in California for 9 months, I became strapped for cash and things started getting tough. Not having a dime to your name will make you go to the extremes. So, Shayne introduced me to the recycling game.
Never in my life have I been so stoked to see a 5 cent refund on the side of a bottle. Having a recycling center up the street, I knew what had to be done. I was skeptical at first about crawling around in dumpsters, but it all came pretty natural for me.
It isn't that much money and you have to get a little dirty, but not only does recycling help save the planet, it helped save my life. My lesson I learned is if you go broke, all you gotta do is pick up a little trash.
