Don't throw away money! Recycling is not only good for the environment, but it's good for your wallet too. Morris Tick will take scrap metal and give you cash for it. The last time I checked, for example, aluminum was $0.47 a pound. Doesn't sound like much, but according to several websites, aluminum is worth about $0.32 a pound, so you're getting a good deal from them. They can be a bit tricky to find, so you might want to call them for directions, and they are only open standard business hours and Saturday morning, so getting there if you have a regular 9-5 job can be tricky, but it's worth it. The people are helpful, and it's one of the cleanest recycling places I've been to.
