Almost all metals are recyclable. You most likely have thousands of household items that can be recycled for their metal parts that you would never even consider. For example, blenders, laptops, cameras, speakers, fax machines, refrigerators, stoves, ovens, appliances, silverware, camcorders, navigation systems, brass instruments, remote controls, auto parts, routers, hubs, circuit boards, hubs, cell phones, and more. Some of those listed items are never thought of as “recyclable” by the average person. Once you are familiar with the kinds of metals that can be recycled, research the current market values for nonferrous and ferrous metals. An easy way to remember the difference between ferrous metals and nonferrous metals is this: nonferrous metals (i.e. aluminum, copper, gold, chromium, nickel, lead, etc.) are NON-magnetic; while ferrous metals (i.e. iron, steel, cast iron, etc.) retain magnetic qualities. Here are the current market values for recyclable metals in Indy:

  • Avatar pinksugarblue What type of cookie sheets do you use...AND?
    Jan 23, 2009 by pinksugarblue | Posted in Cooking & Recipes

    How do your cookies turn out? If i use my nice double-sided sheets, my cookies are great. If i use "regular" sheets, the kind you could pick up from Target, the cookies burn on the bottom and stay goopy on top :-p

    • Like Stagelady above, I use the Air Bake sheets. They have two layers of metal separated by a thin blanket of air in between. This prevents the cookies from burning on the bottom.
      Further, they have only one lifte …etimes.
      They were not cheap, but Ive had mine for 20 years and I use them a couple times a week.

      (Below are the items I have now for sale thru Amazon. At $20 for the set, they are at a great price!)

  • Avatar preachercreaper Does anyone know a website that sells aftermarket fiberglass and sheet metal body parts for a 79 Ford pickup?
    Jul 10, 2008 by preachercreaper | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    I especially need a new cab shell, and various other body side panels. I know of a website that GM endorses, that manufactors aftermarket fiberglass cab shells for much older model year Chevy p/u trucks. It is my most sincere hope to find a simular website endorsed by Ford Motor Company. Please help.

    • Try lmc truck parts. and certifit. com certifit is awholesaler to the body shop industry. fairly reasonable prices and retail stores so you can inspect the sheet metal for flaws before purchase

    I am trying to add best answer to number three womanology but it wont allow me to so how do I add best answer

    • Depends on your area. Right now copper wire is worth more than any thing. Most places only buy scarp metal buy the ton. Best you look in your phone book for the numbers of your local center and ask them. By the pound i cant see it being much more than 1 or 2 cent per pound. but you can always call.

  • Avatar Brutal Panda What are some cool drum cymbols for rock drumming (more on metal side)?

    I want to get some sick symbols for xmas, but im not sure exactly WHAT. Not like normal high hats or ride symbols, I mean like chinese or special effect stuff. I have B8 ride, 2 thin crash, and 2 highhat symbols from Sabian. any suggestions?

    • For rock and metal you need a heavier cymbal, cause you beating the crap out of them! Try and buy die cast cymbals vs. sheet bronze. Die cast is heavier, it has more bell bronze and less soft metals like aluminium, there …ats
