  • Depends on how close you are first to the plant that actually recycles the cardboard and secondly to a major collection center. Around here there are many people who make a couple of hundred dollars a week doing it, but you do need a decent sized truck and arrangements with stores to be able to pick up their boxes. I have seen fights where two or three were trying to take boxes promised by the store to another. 0% 0 Votes
  • well i don%26#039;t live in your country, i am from asia. anyway we get money here when we recycle, but it is not much. infact very little, but if you are a student, it is still money! selling plastic, alluminium cans, glass and metal, we can get money. all enough to buy some treats like sweets or watch a movie in the cinema or get a free cheap lunch. 0% 0 Votes
  • It%26#039;s going for a whopping 3 cents a pound in central California! You might get enough money for a soda %26amp; a gallon of gas for a whole truck load of the!

    Scrap metal is worth far more for the same sized truck load! 0% 0 Votes
  • We don%26#039;t get money for it around here. The other thing they pay us from is scrap metal. People recycle cardboard because they are trying to help protect the earth. Getting a little greener everyday... 25% 1 Vote
  • I didn%26#039;t know you could get money for that! No wonder I see pick up trucks all weighted down with cardboard!! Where would you go to recycle it though? The only place I know is only for cans and bottles. 25% 1 Vote
