    prices from Fresno California

    I took a load of aluminum scrap today -- 290lbs. at .65 for $188
    aluminum cans -- 27lbs at $1.85 for $49.95

    I checked a couple of other prices #1 copper $3.75
    #2 copper $3.65

    this was my first time using this scrap yard and the prices seem pretty good.

    How do they figure the price in redemption state? I know it is .05 a can for the deposit that you paid on the can when you bought them. Do you get the deposit plus the alum value?

    Every time you buy a beer or soda they just add the redemption to the total price, and I think most people still throw their cans away. It used to be 3.5 cents per can but I think its 5 cents a can now. I have seen places advertise $2.05 a pound with a coupon.
