Apparently, there’s good money to be made in recycling older batteries. A recent Instructables article showcases how one sly fox made a few hundred bucks doing this. Seems all you have to do is round up a bunch of batteries, clean ’em up and you’ll make a fortune by turning them in at your local scrap yard.
This article reminded me of another way to make a very quick buck. Office Depot and Staples have a program where you can get a $3 or a $3-off coupon for each ink cartridge you turn in. Go to your school, visit your relatives and friends and do whatever it takes to find printers. Collect enough and visit different locations and you’ll be rolling in dough.
