Not much, but it's better than landfilling.

Most scrap metal merchants (yellow pages) will take Stainless.

A2 70 is an Austenitic 304 stainless steel most likely to the ISO 3506 1979 standard. Its high tensile usually cold worked and is used for making fasteners - bolts and the like.

Hello jammiev

I've merged your two threads together, so that you don't lose any of the replies. The down side is that you are repeating yourself.
