methinks even SA ain't this kind to recyclers.

For $1000 you could maybe buy 33 cartons at about $30 each

Gives you about 800 cans at 5c each, = $40 :(

still better than worldcom or enron, but :) ,

and with lots less worry :chug: :chug:

Well fellas, I didn't do the sums before I posted but the Yanks must pay a lot more for their recycled aluminium cans than we do.

I assume that the original email came from "the States" so there might be another business opportunity in selling empty beer cans to the yanks.

Based on Wee Stu's figures there would be good profits in a container load of crushed beer cans from Aus. and then you would fill the container with brewing goodies and ship it back home and sell it's contents to us all. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;)

Food for thought,

Cheers

Nah, I reckon they pay less for their swill than we do; more cans for the grand.


Either way, I think it's time for me to start building up my stock portfolio.
