    Aluminium cans worth 1p each

    Aluminium cans worth 1p each 21st Aug 04 at 9:17 PM
    Sorry if posted before.

    Has anyone thought of collecting aluminum cans.

    They are worth approx 1p each.

    I take a carrier bag everywhere with me, and pick up drinks cans, stand on them flat, and store them in black bin liners.

    If you look up aluminum recycling, sometimes there is a collection service, but they will only collect at least 6 bags.

    Not sure if scrap yards will take them, but worth phoning round to find out.

    One ton of squashed cans is worth approx 650.

    (Carling cans are always steel)

    Could anyone advise a way of removing the tops off the steel cans, as they are nearly always aluminium?
