Did you know there are ways for you to make money selling your recyclables that you have lying around the house?

Recycling  involves collecting and reusing items instead of having to purchase new ones. Many of them are labeled with symbols to show that they are recyclable. This lowers the cost of these items and save energy.

You can use this as a learning tool to get your family involved. If you want to take a chance and make a difference for the environment and also make some money from it, recycling is the way to go. Here are some ideas on How to Turn Your Recyclables Into Cash.

 

Save Aluminum Cans Instead of Placing It In The Recycle Bin. If you are constantly consuming drinks from aluminum cans why not make money from it. If you have a scrap metal facility in your local area, they will more likely accept aluminum cans. Check with them to find out what items they will accept since some places are more strict than others.

Start a Junk Removable Service . If you have a truck and some storage space available, you can go around the neighborhood and collect unwanted items from your neighbors. You will be amazed of the treasures you will come across. Some people throw away gently used items or things that have never been used. They desperately want to get rid of these things to make space in their homes. You can start out posting flyers with a pick up schedule and the prices for removing them.

Create New Items Out of Recyclables. If you are crafty and creative you can make money online turning your recyclables into a masterpiece that’s in high demand. You can sell your art online or at your local flea market for top dollar. Check out etsy.com to gather ideas for items you can sell.

Sell Stuff That’s Sitting Around Your House. If you have old computer parts like keyboards, motherboards, screens and even smart phones,  there are places online that will pay you for the parts. You can sell these to consumers at Craigslist and eBay or you have the option to go to hardware forums such as Hardforum, Overclock Marketplace and Anandtech. Make sure you look into it first to see if the payments are worth the effort for collecting them.

If you have used items such as  Vinyl Records, CDs, DVDs, clothing and videogames that are still in good condition this can net you some extra cash. People are always looking for classic music and movies to add to their collection.  It can be fun sifting through people’s basements and attics looking for usable vintage items.

You can make some extra money with your recyclables if you have an enterprising spirit. Use these ideas to your advantage to turn this into a full-time business while saving the environment.
