what\'s aluminum going for now days?

I've got about 4 bellhousings I need to get rid of, is it worth the time and effort to take them to a recycler? Thinkin about just tossin them into a construction dumpster.

OR get a plate of tempered Glass and make a Coffee table out of it and sell it on Ebay! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]...... actually, throw them in the trailer I'll drag them up here and do that and we'll split the cash!

Around my neck of the woods you have to pay the place to take any aluminum. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I can't remember what i got the last time for clean aluminum (siding). Not having any steel on them and they might need to be cleaned (no grease/paint) will get you probably double compared to dirty aluminum.
