Recycled Cans and Scrap Metal and Found 2 Cents

Today I finally rounded up my aluminum cans I've been picking up for months and headed to the recycling center. I had a lot of cans and some scrap metal that I'd picked up with my trusty magnet.

This photo shows the receipt and cash ($16.65!) that I got for my junk, plus two pennies I found while I was out and about.

On the way to the recycling center, I spotted a penny on the road ahead of me. Yay! Found money in the street! Luckily, I had to stop right next to it so I opened the door and snapped it up! 

Then at the recycling center parking lot, I saw the other penny half buried in the dirt. Of course, I snapped it up, too.

I was happy with my haul! Do you recycle? Do you take it to cash it in?
