Every spring, as I do my cleaning, I take the time to strip the metal from all the old appliances I discard. I remove the aluminum parts and strip anything that may be attached to them. The recycler paid me about $.50/lb for the aluminum last time, but looking around on the net I see there are many different grades of recyclable aluminum. In particular, one type called Cast Aluminum was listed for over $2 /lb! I'm wondering if VCR heads and cylinders qualify as cast aluminum. How about heat sinks from old TV's? And finally, what about the pieces of brass that the VCR rotary heads screw into, what would these be classified as? Thanks for any advice. I'd like to be sure I'm not getting cheated the next time I take a load of stuff to the recycler......
