I am making an assumption: Messages that I send to the list do not come back to me so I assume they are not making it to the list. If this is not true, and this makes it to the list would someone please let me know. Thanks Tom

At least in my city once a recycle bin is placed at the curb for city
collection it belongs to the city. It is against the law for anyone to
pick through them.

Hi David,

If I put my pop cans or anything which I can collect money on if I bring it to the recycling centre into my recycling bin which is picked up and where I get nothing for it then it is not steeling if somebody picks out said pop cans. It is no different than if I threw the cans into the trash and somebody came by to pick them out (essentially dumpster diving). If I collect my cans in my carport in a bin so I can take them to the recycling centre once a month and somebody comes on my property and goes under my carport to grab those cans then that is steeling and, of course, trespassing.

I found the message James was referring too. When my brother lived with us before I got married, I would get reports of him going into people's recycling box that they had put out on the curb to be picked up by the municipality and taking out the empty pop cans or beer cans . Then he would take them to a store and cash them in for money. This is how he would supplement his income. To me this is steeling. Now, having said this, we run dogs on a trail and frequently find the same things, empties. We cash them in, however, to us it is just cleaning up the environment. Especially when the amount we cashed in could not even pay for a 32 G, SD card. There was someone that would go to beaches on weekends and clean them up. She made enough money doing this each year that she could go to Hawaii every year.

Dumpster diving? I find that offensive. If you recommend blind people go dumpster diving then you are an idiot. And I don’t care if your offended by that. Deal with it.

Dumster diving? Is this your sense of humour or are you actually serious?

Hello again everyone,

Truthfully we've suggested a number of different ideas to different blind individuals for generating needed income to cover the cost of technologhy. Some of these included dumpster diving,becoming certified Braille transcribers and proofreaders along with other ideas. Before writing this note I sent a message to an old schoolfriend of mine who has written a number of books one of which is in audio format. He said that his audio version sold out and he no longer had copies on CD but could provide them in MP3 format. I suggested making his book available through Audible allowing many others to buy it in an audio format and adding an additional source of passive income to his portfolio. That has as much to do with network marketing as this list! All the best.
