OK I recycle and care about the environment...growing up in the 70's we were all taught that in school.
Angie and I give all of our aluminum cans and plastic water bottles to church. We separate and set out all newspaper/cardboard/paper/glass/plastic products for the trash pick-up...every week without fail. Cheaters in my house are punished
We save all of our batteries from phones/cameras/radios/ipods/whatever we have. I put them in coffee cans then drive them over to hazardous waste pick-up when I have paint etc to dispose of.
Well today I get an e-mail that says I can get a recycle kit for not only my batteries but my wiggly light bulbs. The bulb cardboard box container holds 10 wiggly light bulbs and the one for batteries holds 4 pounds worth. Cool
So I tell Angie about it as I carry 2 coffee cans from the garage, one full and one 1/4 full, into the kitchen to weigh them....YES our scale is in the kitchen! Anyway they weigh 12 pounds so I tell Angie I am going to order them, I need 1 for light bulbs and 4 for the batteries. She asks me "then what do we do with them?"...here is the
thing...the e-mail says you just fill 'em up and set out for your postman to pick-up...no postage for you
So I sit down and get ready to place my order...pick the boxes for 1 light bulb and 4 battery boxes...then it says to add to cart
...I can do this!
been on Amazon for CD's many times...so I hit the cart button and........
it says I need to get out my credit card for about $125.00!
Are you kidding me? They want me to pay $25 bucks for each box...free postage?
.....at that price these batteries are gonna end up in my.........
...am I wrong?
