Scrapyards and some recycling centers are places that allow you to recycle cans for cash. Some examples include Alcoa, CanlandRecycling and RecycleUSAInc. Ninety-seven percent of beverage cans are aluminum, so many companies encourage can recycling to save resources and energy, notes Canland Recycling Center.
Alcoa offers a feature that allows people to find local recyclers in their areas. The company recommends getting recycling bins for easy collection of cans. Recycle USA, Inc. is based Birmingham, Alabama, and requires all sellers to be 18 years old and above. Sellers produce a photo ID and sign every transaction, notes Recycle USA, Inc. Canland Recycling is based in Denver, Colorado, and also buys aluminum cans. Sellers can contact the company for current prices since they tend to change regularly, says Canland Recycling Center.
