Default Garbage Segregation

One thing I love about segregating my garbage is that I can get money off of it. The "wet" garbage goes to the compost and the "dry" ones get separated into different categories...paper/ and metals

When I have all the "dry" bins full..I have the local recycler come over on his pushcart to sort and weigh the trash and pay me. I usually get $5 for each bin..I've even volunteered to collect and sort my neighbors trash and my oh my it has helped me get some extra cash..especially when they throw out appliances and furniture. If it can't be restored and resold, i tear it down and sort it by material.

Anyone else doing this?
