Hi all! (first post Cool)
I live in the cornell rouge area and on Thursday mornings I have seen someone looking through our recycling bins. I have seen this person twice.
 
Has anyone else spotted this person? Huh

Is she an old lady?  It might be the same person going through the recycling in the original cornell area.

I've seen about two different people doing it in the area. They collect our cans and other metal recycling for money.
 
I've also seen someone doing it out in Greensborough when I was driving through that neighbourhood.
 
Boring story time: My mother was at the beer store when an elderly man came in to return a HEAP of old beer cans... when he left the cashier told my mother that he does this every other week or so, and that once a year he travels back to China for a month or two to see his family with the funds.
 
There's gold in them there recycle bins, folks.

I see an older man often come by. I leave the beer cans and wine bottles in a separate bag for him. If he can benefit from my laziness to return them (good for him). last year he dropped off tomatoes from his garden on my back porch as a thank you.

I've seen them too. As long as they don't leave a mess there shouldn't be any problem.
 
I made good money as a little kid going around collecting the beer and pop bottles to return for the deposits.

Just a suggestion, since collecting bottles and cans are so lucrative.   Should we set up a centralized bottle collection bin and the funds obtain from the trade-in can go towards the Cornell Residents Association in support of many neighbourhood projects (garden, ice rank etc).
 
Any thoughts
