how much are aluminum cans worth?

Friday, April 30, 2010 at 13:17

I live in Mississippi and I have 1 trash can and about 4 trash bags full of aluminum cans, I was wondering about how much a recycling center would pay per can.

They are worth exactly what someone will pay you for them. I'd call a couple scrap yards and recycling centers and ask what they pay per pound. I'd also weigh them so I had an idea of the value by multiply the weight by the price per pound.

I suspect they are purchased by weight and not volume.
