I have to move and have a ton of aluminum cans, plastics and beer bottles. Anybody in town take all that? Normally I go to Portola but they snipped their hours and I have to move by months end.

Always used to go to a place on fourth street under an overpass a mile or so East of Virginia. It has been 10+ years though, so not sure if they are still there.

Not sure if he is "legit" or not. But there are lots of Mexicans that are running the cans over to cali. I don't drink as much as I used to so I only hunt one down once a year.
