    Moving to Calgary (from Manitoba) and would like to know what items can be recycled for cash? Here we can only do beer cans/bottles for 10cents each... which drives me nuts as we still pay the levy on pop cans ect.

    As well, where is there a recycling depot close to the Coventry Hills area? Thank you in advance!

    AWESOME! Thanks for the links! I may become rich recycling my kids drinking boxes!

    I read thru all of the FAQ and know it is strongly recommended to rinse out all of your milk cartons ect before dropping them off... Are the depots on the cleaner side, or smelly and dirty and avoided by most people? And how do you sort everything when you get there? Do you have to empty everything out of the boxes/bags you bring them there in? And is it a hassle to wait until you have a trunk full of stuff rather then a few smaller loads?
