One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
There are a lot of people in the recycling business the person in the picture, but not all of them do what he does. Yesterday I saw him sorting out what he had collected, big bottles, small bottles, cups, and so on.
For the bottle, he removed the label, then efficiently cutting the neck and the bottom. After that, cutting what’s left of the bottle from top to bottom, then wrap the plastic sheet together. For the plastic cup, he removed the lip of the cup and stacked them together.
The additional effort in sorting out, organizing adds value and he was getting more money by giving the extra effort.
What are you going to do today to add value? The money may not come straight away, but somewhere along the line, you will definitely get something in return!
