Recycling For Fun, Profit and Charity

Triangle Header

After smallivy’s reaction to my last post, I thought I had better go with something more uplifting this week.  So how about an elderly gentleman who has donated over $400,000 to local Georgia charities simply by using money he earned from recycling!  That’s right, bottles, paper and pennies were used to accumulate wealth that has blessed countless people over the years.

Once again I have to stress that “anyone can accumulate wealth”!  Even with an often overlooked source of income like recycling.

    This post reminds of a time that I jumped into a dumpster to get some valuable pallets that I sold for a huge profit when I was in the business of recycling pallets and skids. Yes, you can create wealth from someone else’s garbage.

      That’s right! Often times those pallets are more valuable than the merchandise that was shipped on them.

    Reblogged this on The Small Investor and commented:
    As the Surprise Millionaires reminds us, growing wealth is more about how you use the resources you have than how much money you make.
