I guess there's not much that differentiates one recycling place form the next, but I think it's important to let all know that these sites are out there. They pay decent money just ot encourage you to help Mother Earth out a bit. Bring in your plastic bottles and your aluminum cans. Aluminum is best because the weight to volume ratio is so high (when the cans are crushed). The more you have, the more they pay per pound too. It's worth checking out. If you don't do it for youself, do it for everyone else!
