An avid recycling participant, Chris would recycle weekly bottles & cans as a hobby at first, to see how much he could save. Frustrated with the inefficiency of the current available recycling options, he decided one day that he had endured enough torment and would set out to fix this dilemma once and for all! And here we are...

Like many American working-class families my wife and I were always looking for ways to bring in extra money to save just a little bit more. Raising two little girls in upstate NY is by no means cheap! So when my wife suggested we start to recycle our bottles I thought, “Sure, every little bit helps.”
We were pretty impressed when each week we were bringing in an extra $20 or so. However, to put it mildly the whole process is quite a hassle! First, you have to store the bottles in trash bags that start to take over your kitchen. Then, you have to find time to bring them to a facility where you have to wait in lines with machines that often break down mid-transaction. Who has time for that? My wife sure didn't, and she started to lose her thunder.
But I liked recycling. It was satisfying and sort of became a little hobby of mine. I sure didn’t enjoy the whole process though. I kept thinking there’s got to be a more efficient way to do this; a way that would be easy, convenient and profitable! And that's when the seed was planted! The rest is history… (in the making!)
