On the day the city sanitation truck is scheduled to pick up the trash, you can use a pick-up truck to visit all the streets for trash scavenging.
You sort through the trash and remove all the newspapers.
You can sell them to a paper mill for recycling.
Everything else can can be sorted and sold such as furniture, clothing, books, etc.
You get to work out in the fresh air five days a week and make a good profit.
Your only expense is gas for your truck.
All you have to know is the routes for the city sanitation trucks, which is a matter of public record.
You do have to get up early enough in the morning to beat the city workers, but that really isn’t so hard.
