Recycling Center

So two weeks ago, I decided to get off my lazy ass and finally try to get some money from my empty cans and bottles. I had previously inquired with the Ralph's nearby and they directed me to a place I can go to to recycle my stuff. Because I needed exercise, I thought it would be a good excuse to take a nice walk. So off I went with my little rolling cart from staples with about nine fairly-sized plastic bottles and a couple other recyclables. I thought I was going to a vending machine-type recycling center like they have up in Valencia, but boy was I mistaken. This place was HUGE and smelled like anything. Needless to say, I was a little overwhelmed at first, but eventually figured out what I needed to do by asking around. And of course, I had to document it in photos for the rest of my villagemen (you) to see.
