In most cities and towns, you can recycle metal in a “mixed” recycling container. This usually occurs on a weekly basis. For larger pieces of metal and higher volumes of scrap, you can deliver these to a scrap dealer and actually get paid.
Almost every type of metal is recyclable. On a small scale, metal can all be collected in a recycling bin. With bigger loads, specific types of metal must be first separated before delivering to a local scrap dealer.
