Full Answer

The most common sources of scrap aluminum are aluminum cans. As such, many sites list the price for scrap aluminum in a per-can rate rather than a per-pound format. Some sites also include the aluminum scrap price of specific recycling centers or in specific regions. Individuals recycling aluminum cans should be aware of any deposit refund system within their state, as it affects the per-can price.

Aluminum prices change frequently, so sellers should check prices often. Some recycle centers and buyers keep up-to-date pricing on their websites or Facebook pages, while other establishments require sellers to call for pricing. To find a local buyer of aluminum, sellers can contact their local sanitation department or perform an online search for their local recycling centers. Online listings such as RecycleInMe.com have aluminum price information for cities and countries around the world.
