Yesterday when I had to drive down to the school during the day, I noticed a lot of aluminum cans on the side of the road. On the way back I saw a lot on the other side of the road. There were at least 30 beer and pop cans. The next time the weather is nice and the kids are in school, I think I'll take the one mile walk down and back with a plastic bag and collect those cans and add them to what I will take in to the recycling place.

If I had one of those sticks for picking up litter, I'd do that, too as it looks pretty awful and the adopt a highway people only come out once a month to clean the area. But I don't want to just stick my hand in something that might be ooky.

Maybe if I pick up cans once a week it'll eventually be a nice little (very little, I think it is at 35 cents a pound now) profit to go in savings. Plus the exercise never hurt anyone.

    My kids use the disposable gloves for their recycling efforts. I keep a box in the car for these too, if they want to rescue some cans out of the trash cans at the park here by our place, always good for a couple dozen cans!

    That's a good idea.

    And for super cheap "gloves" just use plastic produce or grocery sacks or bread bags on you hands. I like a few bags in the car for miscellaneous reasons: wet bathing suits/other items, carrying stuff from garage sales, etc.
