Most of them are not inexpensive, but the confetti shredders are the best.

They are "serious" shredders!!!

Just tossed the empties in a tall kitchen garbage bag and put the bag in the trunk of the car when I drove north, and got $1.20 for the deposit that I never paid. I traded the bottle slip in for a dozen eggs, for bottles that most people just toss in the trash.

For homeless people, and people on their last financial legs, those deposit bottles can mean a toothbrush, or a bar of soap, or a coveted pair of socks.

For me, it's a very appreciated bonus.

Oddly enough, none of my neighbors in my 3 street villa neighborhood had their trash bags taken. I hope the thief enjoyed rummaging through those doggie poop bags! Another reminder to shred.
With a strong dog smell it may have been a coyote that dragged the bag off.
