Ways to Make Quick Cash: Turn a party into a money-making machine

Posted: Updated:

With Mother's Day, Memorial Day, and graduations filling up the calendar this month, there may be an opportunity to make some quick cash just laying around your kitchen that you haven't even noticed.  

Here's how to turn any party into a money-making machine, and help the environment at the same time.

Don't forget, that in addition to just collecting your bottles and cans to recycle them, you can also cash in.

Consumers pay California Redemption Value (CRV) when you buy a bottle or can of water, soda or juice. You can get your money back when you take recyclables back to the recycling center.

The Miramar Recycling Center on Convoy Street pays a CRV for all aluminum, plastic, glass and steel beverage containers for which a CRV deposit was charged.

Also, quick cash may be as close as your local grocery store. The website Californians Against Waste lists supermarkets in San Diego County that will pay you for your glass, plastic and aluminum beverage containers. The list includes certain VONS, Ralph's, Henry's, and four Costco locations, among others.
