Ryan found the recycle center on Caye Caulker island during our stay this past week. One of the workers at the recycling plant even recognized him from YouTube! Ryan cashed in his Coke bottles for $1.25. Not a whole lot but every little bit helps! They don’t recycle plastic bottles on the island other than the 5 gallon water jugs so we brought all of our water bottles back in our bags to recycle here at home.
Three truckloads of cans and bottles is a lot of work but we broke Ryan’s all time record and cashed in for $358! Thank you to El Niguel Country Club, Our new customers Eric and Sharon in Westminster, all of our regular customers and friends and family.
Today we got an exciting tour of RePlanet’s processing facility in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We’ve never seen so many cans and bottles at one time. Ryan got star treatment with a welcoming committee and after posing for pics, we got to see how the recycled cans and bottles come into the center and then put into bins, ran thru the machines, squished, baled and then sent back out to be used at places like Gallo Wine or Nestle. Ryan said today was better than going to Disneyland. Best day ever.
Thank you to the awesome team at RePlanet for your 24/7 efforts to keeping the planet clean.
