No. But I don't buy Aluminum cans, don't drink much pop really anyway, don't buy the paper. My garbage is really refuse.
Anyway I keep hoping for global warming so anything I can do to bring that about... (It's supposed to be -21 F sat)

I recycle brass ,copper and aluminum. check the price on copper .You won't belive it. It buys lots of ammo.

Our family has 5 gallon buckets full of assorted brass and we're trying to decide on what to do with it. We don't reload. Is there some place who will take this stuff or somebody local who wants to take this off our hands? They're assorted .40, .357, .45, and other calibers all jumbled together.
We just started recycling a couple months ago when we passed by a local recycling center and I thought, "duh!" We end up with tons of cardboard, yogurt cups and milk jugs, tuna and soup cans. I've always said the earth would end up covered in graveyards and garbage dumps.
When my family moved to the boondocks of TN from NJ (a state notorious for sending their garbage to other states ), we explored our 100 acres and found a ditch where the previous owner dumped all their garbage. We tried to empty it, but after three truckloads we gave up because the pile was so deep. So we covered it up with dirt.
And I do recycle ink cartridges. I use up a lot of ink and return the cartridges back to Staples, where I can get $3 back.

My wife and I are "Granola back to nature nuts" pun intended . We reuse whatever we can and try to recycle whatever we can.
We can't find a place to take glass that is in a reasonable distance.
Betty, if no one wants the brass, most scrap metal places will take it, if you have a lot (a whole lot) of it they will buy it. From reading your post it looks like you already found a place to take it.

I am a packrat and re-user, when I can. I do abhor waste.
However, recycling round here is not easy and sometimes if the equation results in significant gas burned to truck a small amount to a suitable place, then it is not energy or cost efficient.
We use very few canned drinks so not much aluminum accumulates. Newspaper gradually builds up and that gets put aside for times when I can do wetpack tests on ammo! Don't get that much glass.
PA is a fave place for NJ and NY to come dispose of waste

Take it to a gunshow. I'm sure you could make a little bit of money off of it.

Used motor oil and brass for reloading thats about it.
My sister lives in OR so when I visit I have to try to remember not to crush my soda and beer cans when I'm done with them because they get back 5 cents per can or something like that. I usually get yelled at a few times before I get in the routine.

Yeah, you forgot to include "I'm a Gaia hating schmuck that doesn't recycle" option for me to check.

When I lived in WI it was mandatory that everyone recycled. In MI it is optional but I do recycle drink stuff (cans, bottles) and take my used oil in to the auto shops. Stuff like that. I wish there was a practical means to recycle paper up here but nowhere to take them.

Plano Texas had robust city recycling of glass and paper combined with the trash service.
Here in the boonies, we have none.
Wish we did.
